Never be ashamed to lick the bowl…..

Limes juiced and zested

Oh my goodness….and goodness it is.    Lime Ice Cream.   Probably some of the best of anything I’ve ever had.   This is adapted from a recipe by “Merrill” at
We serve this with fresh honeydew and a sprig of mint.  
I have just purchased a bag of lemons specifically to try lemon ice cream.  And won’t that be great with roasted plums?


3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream   (are you flinching yet??)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons grated lime zest


Place everything in a food processor and blend until the sugar is dissolved.
Put in a container (I use an 8×8 glass baking dish) and cover with plastic wrap.
Place in freezer.

In the ice cream maker

Don’t cheat and try before it freezes.   It won’t be terribly hard but will have a wonderful consistency.
