Woman's Weekly recipe With just two ingredients and five minutes prep, this deliciously fruity strawberry ice cream is our quickest and easiest recipe yet, with or without an ice cream machine


  • 340g jar strawberry preserve/conserve
  • 500g carton fresh chilled vanilla custard (preferably a luxury version)
  • Ice-cream cones, to serve


  1. Tip the strawberry preserve into a bowl and beat it until it's runny, then beat in the custard and freeze the mixture in an ice-cream maker. Or pour it into a suitable freezer container and place in the freezer, beating it regularly, so that it freezes evenly to give a smooth texture and large ice crystals don't form.
  2. Once frozen, this ice cream should still remain soft enough to scoop straight from the freezer into ice-cream cones. It will also keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

For Sue McMahon: Hello Sue, have been wanting to drop you a line for awhile but couldn't find an address!:-( I cannot seem to get hold of angelica ANYWHERE - please help. Two other things, I developed the absolutely best way to make mashed potatoes (which I generally don't like): mash potatoes with 1x 250g tub light cream cheese and a couple of teasp (to taste) creamed horseradish. It's delicious hot or cold. The other thing: when making escalopes or schnitzel etc., instead of boring old breadcrumbs, mix some breadcrumbs with sage & onion stuffing mix. It's really taasty, and if you have any left over and it's too eggy to be saved, just mix with remaining egg and fry like fritters. Great stuff. Hope you enjoy.
