Lemon Ice Cream

This is tart, sweet and very lemony

First you need to make the Lemon curd
(you could use bought Lemon Curd, if you had too)

75g butter
150g sugar
zest and juice of 3 lemons
1 egg
2 egg yolks

place butter, sugar, zest and juice into saucepan and heat gently until sugar is dissolved
Place eggs and egg yolk into bowl and beat well
pour egg mixture in a slow steady stream into butter mixture stirring constantly 
keep heat very low
continue stirring until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon
leave to cool

When the curd is cool
whip 75 ml double cream

add your cream to the lemon curd and fold in until combined

Pour into your ice cream maker

If you do not have an ice cream maker
buy one!
(great deals on ebay)
I know it seems like one of those purchases that will gather dust
but really making your own Ice cream is incredibly easy
and you can really have fun with flavours
The results will be much appreciated by all around you I promise
and it really is pretty fool proof

Place in a container freeze and remove every 30 mins to stir out ice crystals
for about 2 hrs (4 times)

you will not get the same creamy consistency as you would with an ice cream maker

  1. Yum! Love your photographs!

    I don't have an ice-cream maker, because I would be a devil with it! Dairy products are best kept at arm's length for me (or a walk to the ice-cream parlour at least!)
