Lemon Ice: Aggie, who has kindly shared several recipes, says: "This is a Lemon Ice recipe from a friend in CT who said it was passed down from her Italian ancestors. We have enjoyed it."

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cups water (boiling)
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice (fresh)
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon rind

How to Make It

  1. Bring water to a boil, letting sugar dissolve in water. 
  2. Allow water to cool and then add lemon water with grated rind. Make sure not to grate the white part of the lemon (called the pith) or you will have a very bitter dessert!
  3. Freeze water in an ice tray, gently stirring the crystals and letting the ice freeze rock solid.
  4. Once it's frozen, scoop into small cups and enjoy.
