Homemade Ice Cream

I am reposting an old favourite of mine this week as I have had little time for new recipes recently. When I spotted cheap local strawberries the other day, this recipe came to mind and I made it for Shabbat. It is easy, quick and lovely and requires no ice cream maker. The amount of sugar can be cut down by a third.

1 can (12 fl oz. (354 ml)) of semi-skimmed evaporated/unsweetened condensed milk
250 g / 1 cup sugar
500 g / 1 pound fruit (one of the following: strawberries, peaches, blackcurrant, mango) washed, peeled if necessary and pureed

Put the can in the fridge one or two hours before you start the recipe.
Pour the milk in a glass bowl and whisk it until it is quite foamy. Fold in the sugar and the fruit. Mix carefully.
Pour into a mold and put in the freezer for at least four hours hours.
