Lemon Cordial-2 & Lime Cordial-3

I made some cordials yesterday and decided to play with the recipes a little adding some low glycemic level agave nectar to the Lemon and Raw Cane sugar to the Lime.  Since the Simple syrup makes up about half of the liquid for the cordials, […]

Lemon Ice Cream, YUM!

So today was the day of citrus…  I made a Lemon ice cream

The lemon ice cream is a little different than what I usually make.  It wasn’t heated prior to putting it in the ice cream maker.

I used this recipe from

  • 3 cups milk – whole milk or 2%
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp. lemon extract
  • 2 cups sugar

Preparation –
Mix all the ingredients together until well blended. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. The ice cream will be soft and creamy. For firmer ice cream, spoon it into a freezer container, cover, and place it in the freezer for about 3 hours. For easy scooping, remove the ice cream from the freezer about 10 minutes before serving.

I’m excited to see how it turns out.  I took some out a little bit ago and it does seem to be setting up right.
