Lime Ice Cream

We made a batch of lime ice cream last night. It was delicious. I guess it was really sherbert, but I am going to call it ice cream because after almost 26 years of marriage and dating for almost two years before that, Mike and I still have the sherbet/sherbert debate! According to the dictionary and Wikipedia, they are both acceptable, but I still like sherbert better, since that is the way it has always been said in my family. The ice cream was delicious and even though the recipe said it makes two quarts, it made closer to three.

Lime Ice Cream

3 ounce Lime Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 6 ounce frozen limeade (thawed)
1 dash salt
1 quart of milk (I used skim)
1 pint half and half
8 drops green food coloring

In large bowl, dissolve jello in boiling water.

Add sugar, thawed limeade and salt. Mix until sugar is all dissolved.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Make according to directions on your ice cream maker.

I almost got an ice cream maker this year but then decided against it. My gang can eat 5-6qts in one sitting! Not sure it is practical to make it homemade. Someday....

ps- I am glad to hear that you still keep in touch with Denise.
