Lemony Slushy Ice


We love this stuff!    And it’s sooooo easy to make.

Take 3 lemons and juice them, pulp and all.  Zest one of them so that you have a couple spoons of zest, finely grated.  And pop it all in a little saucepan with 3/4 a cup of white sugar.   Heat it to a boil, then turn off the heat and stir for about 5 minutes, so that you make a slightly thick sugar syrup.  Add 3 cups of cold water, stir and put into the freezer in a shallow pan or food storage thingy.  After about an hour or two, take a fork and stir up the slightly frozen ice and make slush out of it.  You may have to put it back in the freezer for a while if your pan is not real shallow.   You can simply pour the mixture into ice cube trays too, for a WONDERFUL drop in to your sweet ice tea!  Or lemonade!

And here’s the best part.   You can use any kind of juice or fruit or even jam!  If you don’t use lemons, you can change out the lemons for a cup of any kind of fresh smooshed fruit.   Just make sure you add some water to the cooking syrup.  It’s easy to adjust the recipe!

Nothing is better on a super hot day then some lemon slushy ice!!!
