Super Lemon Ice Cream

Honey and Butter Super Lemon Ice Cream

Lemonheads were one my my secret pleasures as a kid. The super-sour outer candy covering melted away to reveal a harder, sweeter candy inside. I could only eat about two at once but what a puckering my lips got! The same puckering feeling lingered in my mouth after trying this Super Lemon Ice Cream. Dotted with lemon zest and with plenty of fresh lemon juice, this frozen treat is sure to please lemon-lovers everywhere.

2 lemons, organic
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice, from about 3 lemons
2 cups half and half
pinch salt

Zest the lemons directly into a food processor or blender. Add the sugar and blend until the lemon zest is very fine. Add the lemon juice and blend until sugar is completely dissolved. Blend in the half-and-half and salt until smooth.

Chill for 1 hour, and then freeze the mixture in the ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Makes about 1 qt.
