Lemon ice cream

This lemon ice cream is a stunner. It’s unanimously our favourite ice cream around here – and that’s including chocolate. The salt is absolutely key to this dish – creating a perfect balance between sugary sweet and lemony sour.

I was given this recipe by a friend, after she served it at a dinner party, so have no idea who to credit for this marvellous creation. It’s delicious with fresh strawberries.

Lemon ice cream
(makes about 750ml)

  • juice and zest of 3 unwaxed lemons
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200g sugar
  • 450ml double cream
  1. Stir together the lemon juice, zest salt and sugar and mix well.
  2. Slowly add the double cream, stirring all the time.
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and churn until set.

    I agree. I’ve used this recipe of yours for a few years and it’s both blissfully simple and blissfully tasty
