  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 220°C, fan 200°C. Toss the strawberries, sugar, lemon zest and juice and 1 tbsp water together on a baking tray, then roast on the middle shelf for 20 mins, stirring halfway. Leave to cool completely.
  2. Pour the cream into a large bowl and use an electric whisk to whip to stiff peaks. Add the condensed milk and tahini, then whisk again to combine.
  3. Roughly mash the cooled strawberries with a fork. Stir into the cream mixture, including any juices, then scrape into a 2ltr container. Cover with clingfilm so it touches the surface, then freeze for at least 4 hrs or overnight. Remove from the freezer about 15 mins before scooping.

Tip: Tahini is increasingly popular in baking for its gently nutty flavour. Adding a little to this deeply fruity strawberry ice cream makes it extra-creamy too. A small amount goes a long way, but if you’re a tahini super-fan you can increase to 20g.
