Combine the strawberries and 5 tbsp sugar in a bowl; mash together with a potato masher. Store the mixture in the refrigerator while preparing the rest of the recipe.
Stir together the egg yolks, milk, salt and remaining sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat to 80 degrees C, making sure the mixture does not boil; transfer to a chilled bowl and move to the refrigerator to cool, stirring occasionally. Once cooled, stir in the cream, rosewater and strawberry mixture.
Fill an ice cream maker with the mixture, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
This ice cream is absolutely DIVINE!! The rosewater and the salt give it a really full flavour which even our freaky eater nanny adores...
I substituted some of the fresh stawberries for freeze dried
