Lemon Curd Ice Cream

This recipe came from a Blog I read called Tracey's Culinary Adventures. She has a wide range of Ice Cream recipes and I decided to print off a few of my favourites and go on an ice cream making journey! This is sitting at the top of our list so far. If you are a lemon lover this is an outstanding ice cream, worth buying a machine for!!

You can find the recipe here.

The recipe asks for fresh homemade lemon curd so here is a recipe for you, and with the remaining lemon curd that you don't use spread all over your toast for the next week!
And make a pavlova from your egg whites! Or marshmallows!


Ingredients

5 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 lemons, zested and juiced
110gm Butter

Method
  • Add water to a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil
  • Combine egg yolks and sugar in a metal bowl that fits over the saucepan and whisk until smooth
  • measure lemon juice and if needed add water to reach 1/3 of a cup
  • Add juice and zest to the bowl and mix
  • Place the bowl over the saucepan (ensure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl) and whisk until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon
  • Remove from the heat at add the butter small pieces at a time, making sure each ones melts before adding the next one.
  • Keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
