I found this recipe several years ago and make it whenever I have the opportunity. One thing I like about this ice cream--other than the pleasant lemon taste--is that it does not turn icy the next day. -Susan Litwak Bellevue, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  2. Whisk a small amount of hot milk mixture into the eggs. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir until mixture reaches 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon.
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in cream and lemon juice. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Press waxed paper onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  4. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze. When ice cream is frozen, transfer to a freezer container; freeze for 2-4 hours before serving.
