Summertime Heaven: Homemade Lemon Gelato

Take Meyer lemons, handpicked from the tree out back.

Heat cream and eggs 'til steamy.

Stir in sugar and vanilla.

Cool, then...

Whirl in one of these:

Add you've got a little slice of summer heaven. Can't get enough of the stuff.

I was going into withdrawal after we returned from Italy, where we were on the constant lookout for the best gelato - which meant tasting many different varieties. Grom was declared the winner. Oh, you lucky New Yorkers - you've got one nearby!

We'll have make do with the recipe I found here.

So far, the ice cream maker might be our most-used wedding gift. Every time I use it, I remember the sushi and ice cream dinners my friend and I used to have. Could there be two more perfect foods?

This post has no affiliation with KitchenAid or Williams-Sonoma. I just love homemade ice cream.

ohhh, jealous that you have lemons out back. We have a lemon and lime tree but sadly no fruits yet...maybe next year?

Yay, I love Gelato, and I'm thrilled to see an attachment for my kitchen aid.
