Makes 3 1/2 cups
inspired by Food & Wine
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 rosemary sprigs
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
In a saucepan, bring the water, sugar and rosemary to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Discard the rosemary and let the syrup cool to room temperature. Add lemon juice and refrigerate until chilled. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, pour syrup into a shallow container and freeze. I used this method as the quantity wasn’t sufficient for my ice cream maker to work properly. The subtle hint of rosemary is a lovely match to the lemon. Enjoy!
