Traditional Italian Lemon IceAlways a treat no matter what time of year! Click here for this and more!
This is the time of the year when this one hits the spot, so I had to make a special repost to remind everyone of this great refreshing ice! Back in Upstate NY, where I grew up. We couldn't wait for June to arrive, that's when our local Italian bakeries started to make this delicious Italian ice.. Then when we were fortunate enough to have a nice hot day everyone would rush down to the bakery and hope they didn't run out of it, to buy a quart or more.....so good! We would have to stand in long lines!
Here is our family recipe and our version of this lemon ice....if you aren't as fortunate to live near a wonderful Italian Pastry Shop, this will be a treat! Give this a try sometime... save it for the warmer weather! Italian Lemon Ice......
