Hmm, what can I do with older lemons that are starting to shrivel up? Oh, I know…lemon ice cream! And oh yum, did it turn out delicious!
This ice cream recipe is awesome and I think the reason it turned out so creamy was the unique way you incorporate the heavy cream. Before you add it to your milk and sugar, you whip it just like you’re making whipped cream. So before it even makes it to the ice cream maker, it’s already nice and thick and whipped to a creamy consistency.
I was excited at the prospect of fresh lemon ice cream but I also thought it may need some added texture. I had a box of Nilla Wafers handy so I broke a bunch into pieces and added those to it. They get nice and soft and added just the right amount of cookie flavor to the ice cream. Yummy in my tummy!
