My mom found this family favorite years ago in an Old Farmer's Almanac, and the beauty of it is that there is no need for an ice cream maker; a hand mixer or blender is ideal, but beating vigorously by hand will also do the trick.

Makes about 2 quarts
2 Cups mashed strawberries
1 Cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 Cups heavy whipping cream or half & half
NOTE: Peaches can be substituted for strawberries if desired.
