Whey-Preserved Strawberries

Food Forward works with larger California farmers to reduce waste in the fields, and connected us with a farmer in Oxnard with a few extra pallets of extra-ripe strawberries. After trimming the stems, we soak them in surplus whey to continue breaking them down and bring out their jammiest berriness. We blend the resulting super-strawberry preserve with cream and sugar for a berry ice cream unlike any other.
