Lime and Lemon Ice Cream

  One of our favorite recipes from the Better Homes and Gardens Fresh Summer Desserts is the Lime and Lemon ice cream. Both Lyle and I are fond of it and I made it often this summer and will make it through the year. 
  The recipe is called Lime and Lemon for a reason. The flavor is primarily lime and is just tart and tangy and the perfect summer treat. To make it even better, make a ice cream float with it and a lemon lime soft drink, (Seven up or something like that).
  Like all ice creams, it should be put in the freezer and left to ripen for a few hours. This is truly a great ice cream and I hope some of you give it a try.

Ripen 4 hours
Freezer time will vary with your type of ice cream freezer
 4 cups whole milk
1 ½ cups sugar

⅓ cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel

Several drops yellow food coloring (optional) 
  In large bowl stir together milk, sugar, whipping cream, shredded lemon peel, lemon juice, shredded lime peel, lime juice and if desired food coloring. (Mixture may apper curdled.) Freeze in your ice cream freezer according to the instructions. I always chill the mixture in the refrigerator or freezer before putting it into the machine. It will set up much faster that way.
