Lemon Ice Cream
I tried making the Lemon Meringue Ice Cream recipe from my Gourmet cookbook the other day but it didn't turn out as planned. I scrapped the meringue because I added 3 egg whites instead of 2 so it didn't crisp up enough. As far as the ice cream goes, it turned into scrambled eggs (even though I did everything right!) so I had to strain it 4 times and lost some of the egg in the process. However, I managed to save it and the taste was pretty impressive. This ice cream has quite a zip to it and tastes kind of like an intense frozen lemon curd. Very tasty.
My ancient ice cream maker is finally starting to give out on me so I was hoping some of you, readers, would have a suggestion as to what ice cream maker I should ask for (my birthday is coming up and I have hinted to my mom that I could use a new one). Anyone have a favorite brand?
