Fresh Lime Ice Cream
from Food and Wine, 1987

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice from 3 to 4 limes
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon grated lime zest from 3 to 4 limes
2 cups sugar, preferable superfine
pinch of salt
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups milk

In a large bowl combine the lime juice, lime zest, sugar and salt. Stir well. Gradually stir in cream and then the milk; stir gently until sugar dissolves. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, if possible to allow the flavor to develop fully. Stir the mixture, pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufactures instructions.

Note. This sophisticated ice cream has an intense lime flavor and is amazingly easy to prepare.

Nalani's note. Add 1 or 2 drops of green food coloring to make it a very pale green.
