Lemon-Ginger Ice Cream

Lemon-Ginger Ice Cream

1½ cups caster sugar / superfine sugar

finely grated zest of 1 lemon

¾ cup lemon juice, strained

½ cup very finely chopped crystallised ginger

4 egg whites

1 cup cream

½ cup greek yoghurt

Combine sugar, lemon zest and juice and ginger in a medium pot. Stir over heat until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

While the syrup is boiling, beat egg whites in an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. On low speed, gradually add the hot syrup, then turn mixer speed to high and beat until cool and very thick (about 10 minutes). Transfer to a large mixing bowl so you can use the same mixer bowl and beater (you don’t need to wash them in between) to whip the cream to soft peaks. Gently fold in the yoghurt, then mix in the beaten egg whites a little at a time, folding gently until evenly incorporated.

Spoon into a container, cover and freeze for at least 6 hours. Lemon and Ginger Ice Cream will keep for 3-4 weeks in the freezer.

Bryan Foltz https://www.annabel-langbein.com/recipes/lemon-and-ginger-ice-cream/432/ I substituted honey for some of the sugar. If you use fresh grated ginger, reduce the amount. 😉
