1 c sugar
2 c heavy cream
2 c light cream
1 t vanilla extract
¾ t peppermint extract
¼ c chopped mint
Parsley syrup

In a large bowl, stir together strawberries, sugar and mint until combined well. Cover mixture and chill overnight, stirring occasionally. Drain strawberry mixture in a sieve set over a bowl pushing all the strawberries through. Mix with creams and stir well. Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker following directions on the maker.
