Lemon Ice Cream

adapted from Gourmet


  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups half-and-half, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, egg yolks, salt and 1 cup of the half-and-half to a medium saucepan. Whisk to combine. Set the pan over medium heat, and whisking constantly, cook until the mixture registers 170-175 F on an instant read thermometer. Remove from the heat and strain the custard through a fine mesh sieve into a heatproof bowl. Allow to cool briefly, then whisk in the remaining 1 cup of half-and-half and the vanilla. Press a piece of plastic against the surface of the custard and refrigerate until very cold – overnight is best but at least 6 hours.

Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to airtight container and freeze until firm, at least a few hours.
