  1. Blend strawberries, 50g sugar and lemon juice in a food processor until strawberries are coarsely chopped. Transfer mixture to a bowl and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  2. Heat 250ml whipping cream, milk and remaining 150g sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed through and sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes; remove from heat, cover and allow cream mixture to cool for 30 minutes.
  3. Whisk egg yolks together in a bowl. Slowly pour the warm cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Transfer warmed egg mixture back to the saucepan.
  4. Heat egg yolk mixture over medium heat, constantly stirring and scraping the bottom of the saucepan, until custard thickens enough to coat the back of a spatula, about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour remaining 250ml of cream into a large bowl and set a sieve on top of the bowl. Slowly pour custard through sieve to strain. Add vanilla extract and salt. Stir chilled strawberry mixture and chocolate chips into custard mixture.
  6. Place ice cubes into a large bowl and add water; stir. Place the bowl of strawberry-chocolate mixture into the ice bath and allow mixture to cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes; remove bowl from ice bath and cover with clingfilm. Refrigerate until well chilled, 8 hours to overnight.
  7. Pour chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches 'soft-serve' consistency. Transfer ice cream to a lidded container. Cover surface with clingfilm and seal. To achieve the best flavour, ice cream should be left in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.
