There are simple things in life that have the power of lighting up our day – like arriving home and finding a package or your favorite magazine waiting for you in the mailbox. I love that.
My copy of David Lebovitz’s ice cream bible was delivered Friday and Saturday morning I was in the kitchen, preparing a recipe from it. Are you surprised my first choice was a citrus flavor?? Didn’t think so. :D
Super lime ice cream
adapted from The Perfect Scoop
2 large limes
½ cup + 2 tablespoons (125g) caster sugar
½ cup (120ml) freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 3 large limes)
1 cup (240ml) whole milk
1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
pinch of salt
Zest the limes directly into a food processor or blender. Add the sugar and lime juice and blend until the sugar is dissolved. Blend in the milk and heavy cream.
Chill for 1 hour, then freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
