Lemon Ice Cream

1 large lemon
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup well-chilled heavy cream

With a vegetable peeler remove zest from lemon, being careful not to include any white pith. In a food processor blend zest with sugar until very finely ground. Squeeze enough juice from lemon to measure 1/4 cup.

In a large bowl stir together sugar mixture and milk until sugar is dissolved and stir in lemon juice. In a medium bowl beat cream until it just holds stiff peaks and fold into milk mixture gently but thoroughly.

Pour mixture into a 9x5x3-inch metal loaf pan. Freeze ice cream until frozen, about 3 hours, and up to 1 day. Makes about 1 quart.
