Lemon Ice Cream Perfect For Summer
Refreshing Ice Cream Recipe Perfect For A Summer BBQ
When it comes to desserts I’m more of a lemon guy. This lemon ice cream really does the trick for me. It’s creamy and tangy and full of lemon flavor without being overwhelming. I sort of think of it as lemon curd in ice cream form.
This recipe is perfect for a Summer BBQ.
Lemon Ice Cream
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 3 cups heavy (whipping) cream
- Zest stripped from 2 lemons
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 large egg yolks
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Combine the milk, cream, lemon zest and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a heavy saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until almost simmering. In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and the salt in a bowl. Slowly pour the hot liquid into the egg mixture, whisking as you pour. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Cook, over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a heat-resistant plastic or a wooden spatula, until the custard reaches 175°F and lightly coats the spatula.
