Italian Ice: Sweetness, Sunlight, & Vitamin C

During these cold, dark winter days, add sunlight and Vitamin C with a homemade Italian ice.
Orange Lemon Lime Ice
Boil 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar. Cool.
Add 1 c. orange juice, juice from 1 lemon and 1 lime.
Add zest. Stir. Pour into shallow pan and place in freezer.
After 45 minutes, ice will begin to form on the surface and around the sides. Loosen with a spoon. As the ice hardens, "rake" it with a fork.

I'd love to try this with Splenda for less calories.


Serve with Roasted Garlic Soup for a medicinal, cold-beating duo.

  8. You did use the words "I'm having a virtual melt-in-the-mouth moment."
    And I think I need to say the same here, like the carbonara and while I was eating I did look how different you made the table under the staircase.

    Lots of love, Maria Berg, Sweden

  10. Your photos make me hungry for things I would not normally prepare. While I might pass on the roasted garlic soup, the ice refuses to be ignored. It will be on my table - soon.

  11. Hi Miss "G"!
    Delicious photos and great choices, garlic and lemon go well together... speaking of together... you and I are on the same mind set... I did my yearly Limoncello today and did a photo demo for foodie Friday this coming week! The lemons are bumper crop this year, they are just falling off peoples trees... I make Grand Mariner and Lemoncello every year. I have made the Grand Mariner for years, then fell in love with Limoncello when I went to Capri a couple of years ago and have been making it ever since! Its sunshine is a glass!

  13. The ice looks delicious and love most everything lemon, but not this time of the year. I am ready for the Spring thaw!

  14. Looks lovely -- even though it is about 10 degrees here -- but Italian ice or ice cream or sherbet is delicious any time of the year!

  16. "Saporito" as the Italians would say for the Garlic Soup. It does sounds delicious. ("Savoureux" if it were French Onion. A favourite of we Canadians.)

    Thank you for sharing the recipes Michael. I will definitely try them. -Brenda-

  24. I love, love your photos, it's like looking at a magazine.
    That italian Ice sure looks good but I'll have to save it for later as it is freezing cold here, but the soup will do at this time of year.

    Have a great day!

  25. Your lemon lime ice looks so good, and sounds doable, too.

    The soup looks yummy. I love soup in general, so I'm going to check out the recipe.

    By the way, I made your bacon and chive cornbread muffins the other night and they were a hit with the whole family.
