Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. With a vegetable peeler, remove the zest (the colored part of the rind - not the white stuff) in long pieces from the fruit.
  2. 2. Squeeze the juice from the fruit to yield 1/2 cup juice. (Rolling the fruit on the counter under your palms will break the juice sacs inside and make it easier to squeeze the juice.).
  3. 3. In a small, heavy saucepan, heat the water and sugar, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the zest and transfer the syrup to a bowl to cool. Chill syrup, covered, until cold.
  4. 4. Discard zest and stir in citrus juice.
  5. 5. Freeze the lemon mixture in a metal bowl, stirring every 30 minutes to scrape down the ice crystals from the side of the bowl, until liquid is granular but still slushy (about 4 hours). Serve immediately.
