  • Summary

    [Photographs: Vicky Wasik] This light and refreshing ice cream tastes like a frozen lemon meringue pie: rich, creamy, and tart. It's best with fresh Meyer lemons, which have an orange-like sweetness and mellow acidity, for a gentle lemon flavor that's none too tart. Meyer lemons can be pricey, so be sure to save the juiced and zested rinds for our no-cook lemon syrup. If you like, use the syrup to make a batch of Meyer lemon chantilly to serve alongside the ice cream. You can also garnish the ice cream with a spoonful of roasted strawberries warm from the oven.
