Default making strawberry ice cream - vanilla extract of vanilla bean?

I would like to make strawberry ice cream with my new cuisinart ice-
cream maker.
It calls for vanilla extract - 1tsp. I am wondering if using real
vanilla bean will make a noticable difference in flavor. If so, what
would be an equivalent amount of vanilla bean for 1tsp of extract.
If there is a high quality vanilla extract that would be just as good,
please recommend one.
Thanks

The bean will make a noticable difference-better! I'd use 1/2 of a
bean, split lengthways, and scrape the insides into your cream.

Since you're making strawberry ice cream, I'd use the extract. No sense wasting a
bean when the main flavor isn't vanilla. Use Penzey's, Spice Island, something of
that sort.

If your strawberries are juicy, mash some (your choice as to the
amount) and put them in the cream/milk mixture while heating.

I've found that extracts that are artificial are very chemical
tasting. I've only seen a few that aren't artificial; i.e., lemon,
orange, almond, anise. As to using vanilla extract with strawberry,
depending on your own tastes, it may enhance the flavor. But I would
use a good vanilla extract (Madagascar?). I bought 10 extracts when I
bought the Cuisinart ice cream maker; basically I'm down to just a few
that I use now.

BTW the Cuisinart recipes are for 3 cups of liquid/milk, so if I'm
adding a lot of strawberries, think about the ultimate volume you will
have to churn.

About 2 weeks ago I made strawberry ice cream using cream/milk
mixture. I made it without eggs. Even using 2 cups cream to 1 cup
whole milk, it tasted a bit icey. I haven't made the strawberry using
eggs. It certainly would be creamier using eggs, if creaminess is
what you're after.

Good luck.
