Lemon Ice Cream

Lemon Ice Cream
I hauled my ice cream maker down to my parents' house to make this ice cream. My mom loves Blue Bell lemon ice cream, but she has yet to find it in Texas. Apparently it was easily found in Atlanta, but now that she is in Blue Bell's home state, she cannot find it. Apparently there is some lemon cookie ice cream that works in a pinch, but it isn't perfection. This ice cream is. It takes some time to allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator, but it is completely worth the wait. I was nervous making ice cream with eggs, but it couldn't have been any easier.  Credit to Your Homebased Mom for the delicious recipe, I did adapt it a bit because I have a lemon zest aversion, but feel free to add it back in if you love it.
Lemon Ice Cream

½ cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 ½ cup heavy cream

In a saucepan whisk together the juice, sugar and eggs. Add in the milk. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until it comes to a simmer. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold. Stir in the heavy cream and freeze in the ice cream maker per manufacturer's instructions.

I love using my ice cream maker-I actually never thought about making lemon ice cream-I think I would love this! Yum!

I love Blue Bell lemon as well. I have not found it in Houston either, but also had the lemon cookie, which is not the same to me. If you ever drive to Austin via 290, you can stop at the Exxon in Brenham next to the movie theater and K-Bobs. You'll find lemon there, along with my other favorite, cinnamon.

Thanks so much for the Brenham tip! We ate at K-Bob's last time we were up that way.

Have you read David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop? Best ice cream cookbook ever. Lemon buttermilk sorbet, tin roof sundae ice cream, Vietnamese coffee ice cream, peanut butter ice cream, plum ice cream...they are all so good.

I think lemon ice cream sounds great! I don't think I've ever seen it before.
