    ellie_'s Note:

    I came across this recipe while looking for something new to do with strawberries and thought it sounded delicious--combining my two of my favorite fruits. Prep time does not include letting ice cream cool and freeze (at least 8 hours). Cooking time includes processing time. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 1985)

      This was an interesting combination of fruit. I had never thought of putting strawberries and apricots together in ice cream. The custard is super thick and the ice cream is so creamy! It is not overly sweet. I did use Spelnda instead of the sugar and no one would ever guess.
