Meyer Lemons, that unusually delicious cross between a lemon and a Mandarin. I like to do them up like a Limone Gelato
Meyer Lemon Gelato
1 cup Meyer Lemon juice (6-8 Meyer lemons)
1/2 cup Meyer Lemon peel (6-8 Meyer lemons); not zested, whole peels are good
1 cup Simple Syrup
3/4 cup whipping cream
Bring the first 3 ingredients to a boil and hold at a boil for 2 minutes. Let cool. Strain. Whisk in the whipping cream. Make into ice cream using the instructions on your ice cream maker.
Note: Limone gelato is a particularly potent and flavourful gelato. It makes a great palate cleanser and pairs well with many other fruit gelatos or sorbets. On its own it is delectable, but I wouldn't scoop out a bowl of it the way I'd eat a whole bowl of ice cream.
