Ingredients

2 lemons

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 9 lemons)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. Peel the skin off of the lemons with a vegetable peeler, being careful not to get any of the bitter pith. Chop the peels into the size of large sesame seeds. You should have about 2 tablespoons.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 1 cup water, sugar and lemon peel to a boil until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is clear. Remove from the heat, stir in 1/2 cup water, fresh lemon juice and salt; this will help bring the temperature of the liquid down. Chill completely in the refrigerator, 2 hours.
  3. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions.
  4. Cook's Note: It is very important to the flavor that you freshly squeeze the lemon juice for this recipe; store-bought lemon juice often has an extremely metallic taste.
