On a trip down to the Cape earlier this summer I discovered a new AMAZING ice cream place. The Ice Cream Sandwich
, in Sandwich, MA. (FYI: the perfect plate to stop when there’s Sunday evening traffic due to the exodus of tourists crossing the bridge.) Ice Cream Sandwich is all homemade flavors and I tried the Lemon Mousse Shortcake – and oh-my-icecream – it was fantastic.
I loved the creamy take on a citrus flavor, as lemon flavors usually come in tart sorbets or italian ice. I thought I’d try my own hand at it.
Lemon Ice Cream Recipe:
1. Zest and juice 5 lemons. I use a cheese grater to zest.
2. Soak zest in lemon juice for an hour for added zing.
3. Add 1 cup whole milk, 3 cups cream (sorry…), and 1 cup sugar
4. Churn in ice cream maker for 25 minutes
The result was a light and refreshing lemony ice cream. Not tart, like lemon sorbet.
I’d like to try it next with a raspberry syrup, or churn in fresh blueberries.
Now that I’ve tried citrus ice cream, I’m eager to try grapefruit!
What dream flavor ice cream would you like to try?
