4 quarts fresh strawberries, stemmed & sliced
4 cups granulated sugar
2 2/3 cups milk
2/3 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
additional fresh strawberries for garnish, if desired
In a mixing bowl, combine the strawberries and sugar; let stand until juicy. This will probably take 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Mash the berries or puree in blender (will take several batches to do this).
Add the milk, orange juice, and cinnamon to the mashed or pureed berries; stir to combine well. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker cylinder and process according to the machine's manufacturer's instructions.
If you do not have an ice cream freezer, you can freeze in shallow containers in the freezer for about 3 hours or until of sherbet consistency.
To serve, scoop into individual serving dishes and garnish with fresh berries, if desired.
