Lemon Sherbet

by Kelli H. on January 27, 2012

Did you notice there wasn’t a Random Thoughts Thursday? Probably not, but if you did notice, well, I just didn’t feel like doing it this week. Sometimes, I get really sick of things. I’m not saying I won’t do them anymore, but I definitely needed a week off. Should resume normally next week.

This literally is the week of lemons on my blog. My blog this week is allllllllll lemons, minus one post on beer! It’s like I have a lemon blog. 

When I was typing this post I wrote Lemon Sherbert. Am I the only one that calls it that? I loved orange sherbert sherbet when I was a kid. It was probably one of my favorite desserts, right Mom?

What can I say about this lemon sherbet? Well, for starters, it’s AMAZING! Seriously, that’s pretty much all I need to say. Homemade ice creams are the best desserts. EVER. Please make this someday, and if you do, let me know. I want to know you experienced the awesomeness that is this dessert.

Lemon Sherbet
recipe by David Lebovitz
The Perfect Scoop

3 cups whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
3-4 lemons for zest an 6 tablespoons juice

1. In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup milk and sugar together. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Zest 1 lemon into the saucepan and stir. Remove from heat.
2. Pour into a bowl or 4 cup measuring cup. Add remaining 2 cups milk and refrigerate until cold.
3. Stir in the lemon juice.
4. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions.

Notes: I chilled my milky sugar mixture for about an hour.
I churned my mixture in the icre cream maker for about 20 minutes on speed 1. Then I transfer it to the freezer. It was in the freezer for about 2 hours before I served it.

It should probably be known that my serving was more than that ramekin.

That sounds super easy and looks so delicious… Yes, orange sherbet/sherbert was an on again off again staple in our house. We all liked it. and I still say sherbert so you probably picked that up from me and I probably picked it up from my mom, right mom?
