Gluten-Free Recipe Card and Pictures
2 Cups Sugar 2 Cups Water 1½ Cups Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Zest
Note: You will probably need between 6 and 8 good sized fresh lemons to produce the required quantity of juice.
Start by dissolving 2 cups of sugar into 2 cups of water on the stovetop (only heat as much as needed to dissolve sugar easily). Remove from stove and allow to cool to room temperature.
Zest and juice a pile of fresh Lemons (zest them before juicing them) until you have 1½ cups of fresh-squeezed juice, and a couple tablespoons of lemon zest. Mix the lemon zest/juice into the sugar/water.
Now place that (room temperature) mixture into the ice-cream machine, and run it for 20-25 minutes. Then, place the (rather soft) lemon ice into the freezer to firm up the rest of the way.
