Leonard Trevithick's Awesome Strawberry Ice Cream

1 1/2 cups well-crushed strawberries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (the Trevithicks use Eagle brand)
1 cup half-and-half (or heavy cream)
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine the berries, juice and sugar in a medium-sized bowl; set aside, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. In another bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, half-and-half, salt and 1/2 cup water. Stir berry mixture into cream mixture, then freeze according to manufacturer directions.

Makes 1.5 quarts.
