Ingredients

  • 3 to 4

    lemons

  • 3

    cups water

  • Kaffir lime leaves

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

Directions

Grate the peel of two lemons, then combine the lemon zest, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring the liquid to a simmer and continue simmering it, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved (about 3 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool. Pour the cooled liquid through a mesh strainer into a medium mixing bowl. Discard the zest left in the strainer. Cut the lemons into halves and, with a lemon reamer or citrus juicer, juice enough of them to make 2/3 cup of strained lemon juice. Stir the juice into the sugar water. Then pour the mixture into a large, shallow nonaluminum baking dish. Place the baking dish in your freezer. When the mixture starts to freeze around the edge, stir and mash it with a fork to break up the ice. Repeat this periodically until the ice is firm (about 3 to 5 hours). Serve in hollowed lemon halves. Garnish with kaffir lime leaves. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
