Not to be melodramatic or anything, but Meyer lemons are.my.life.

By which I mean I impulse-bought two big bags of them around Christmas when I had five million other things to think about, none of which included spending my days and nights pondering their fate.

And so now I’ve been making up for lost time.

IMG_5619

It’s hard stuff deciding the fate of these sweet-sour orbs of sunshine.

You want to make sure that you use each and every one of them to the best of your ability.  And then at the same time you don’t want to use them at all because what will perfume your kitchen with their intoxicating scent once they’re gone?

IMG_5617

And to top it all off, at least once a day, your boyfriend feels that it is his manly duty to inform you that he doesn’t believe that Meyer lemons exist.  Never mind that you shove one into his nose at least twelve times a week so that he can smell how different they are from run-of-the-mill Eureka lemons.  Or that they are actually more of an orange-yellow than a pale yellow (and duh, if they’re different colors they must be different fruits!).  Or that he should just believe you because you actually know things about food whereas he still thinks that red delicious and granny smith apples are the only two varieties out there. (Blech.)

Talk about an emotional roller coaster.

And then, just as I was thinking that ice cream would be just the thing to calm my stressed-out nerves.  It hit me.

Meyer.Lemon.Ice.Cream.

Oh.  Yes.

IMG_5606

Thankfully, the Bi-Rite creamery cookbook had all the kinks worked out for me, and the end result was a creamy sweet-with-a-hint-of-tang ice cream dream.  So good, in fact, that now I spend almost all of my waking moments thinking about the despair that’s going to befall me once the quart is gone.  While the rest of the time I sneak spoonfuls of it from the freezer.  Sigh. Yup, it’s a tough life.

GIVEAWAY
Some of you may be asking, “Joanne! Whatever are those little chocolatey-delicious spheres that you topped your ice cream with??”

Well, I’m so glad you asked.

The Hershey Company recently launched their new Brookside Chocolate Collection which pairs a delicious dark chocolate with various exotic fruit juice pieces such as pomegranates, goji berries, and acai berries.  I was lucky enough to receive a tasting kit with these flavors and so in addition to just grabbing handfuls of them every time I passed my kitchen table, I also used them as a topping for this ice cream.  They were a match made in heaven.

The kind folks over at Hershey have been generous enough to also offer a tasting kit to one of you guys!  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what your favorite way to eat chocolate is.  Also leave me a way to contact you if you are not a blogger.  The giveaway will run until next Friday, January 25th!

Also on a fun note, I recently made a cooking video for Whole Foods featuring one of their products that’s going to be on sale this week!  You can check it out here!

Meyer Lemon Ice Cream
Makes about 1 quart, adapted from Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones

Ingredients
For the curd

  • 3 Meyer lemons
  • 7 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar

For the ice cream

  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup 1% or 2% milk
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  1. To make the lemon curd, put about 2 inches of water in the bottom of a double boiler or a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  2. Finely grate the zest from the lemons into the top of the double boiler or the non-reactive bowl you will be using to make your curd.  There should be about 3 tbsp. Juice the lemons and measure out 1/2 cup juice.
  3. Whisk the yolks into the zest and then whisk in the 3/4 cup sugar. Add the lemon juice and whisk to blend. Put the double boiler insert or bowl over but not touching the simmering water. Cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture is thick and pudding-like, about 10 minutes.
  4. When the curd has thickened, remove from the heat and pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl. Lay plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.
  5. Meanwhile, make the ice cream base. In a medium heatproof bowl, whisk the yolks just to break them up, then whisk in half the sugar. Set aside.
  6. In a heavy nonreactive saucepan, combine the cream, milk, salt, and the remaining sugar. Put the pan over medium high heat. When the mixture approaches a simmer, reduce the heat to medium.
  7. Carefully scoop about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture and add it to the bowl with the egg yolks, whisking them constantly. Repeat with another 1/2 cup of hot cream. Using a heatproof rubber spatula, stir the cream in the saucepan as you slowly pour the egg-and-cream mixture from the bowl into the pan.
  8. Cook the mixture carefully over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it is thickened, coats the back of a spatula and holds a clear path when you run your finger across the spatula, 1-2 minutes longer.
  9. Strain the base through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean container. Set the container into an ice-water bath. Use the spatula to stir the base occasionally until it is cool. Remove the container from the ice-water bath. Cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  10. Once the curd and the ice cream base are thoroughly cooled, put 3/4 cup of the lemon curd in a medium bowl. Whisk in the chilled base a little at a time until smooth.
  11. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions. Enjoy right away or allow to firm up in the freezer for at least 4 hours.

  5. Bronwyn says:

    Brownies, chocolate brownies! The denser and fudgier the better!

  6. bellini says:

    I am now seeking Meyer lemons since it is the season. They should be n the stores and perfect for all sweet treats like this ice cream. If I had to choose just one way to adore chocolate it would be straight up. A nice chocolate bar goes along way.

  7. Danielle says:

    I have a bag of meyer lemons begging to be used but I dont know what I want to with them yet. Ice cream is a good idea!

  8. Patsy K says:

    I need to make that ice cream… I don’t care if it’s barely above freezing today!

  9. Danielle says:

    I just made a chocolate cake with LEMON peel, it was incredible! I got tons of compliments.

    The husband refuses to believe there are yellow tomatoes. Don’t get me started!

  10. Ooh, you are right. I should track down some Meyer lemons. Something my Asian grocer doesn’t carry them. 😉

  11. Just watched your video, Joanne. I can’t believe how small your kitchen is especially when you make such delicious food. (Also love the open cabinets!) You are awesome!! 🙂

  14. Meredith says:

    The ice cream looks wonderful! Another recipe to add to my growing reserve until I get my own ice cream maker…

    My favorite way to eat chocolate is by drinking a warm, soothing cup of hot chocolate, maybe with a little hint of chili pepper. Especially enjoyable after a day out in the brisk winter air or while snuggling with a little cat fur ball. Self confessed cat lady, hot chocolate makes it acceptable.

  15. you know my adoration for all things meyer lemon 🙂 this is absolutely fabulous!! i’m a little surprised by the chocolate… going to have to try that pairing!

    my favorite way to eat chocolate is on its own… or smothered with pb cream cheese frosting 🙂

  22. Meyer lemons are my love right now as well. And girl, I thought those were blueberries on your ice cream, but chocolate? YES! I pretty much love chocolate in any way, shape or form. So my favorite way…just straight up!

  23. Meyer Lemon! I would beg my husband to buy it, yet he insisted on buying the regular variety , ah men. I never did get to try Meyer Lemon. Now I’m unstoppable. Excited to try this! Of all the icecreams I’ve tried, this is new to me. So glad I bought two pounds of lemons today, thinking I would find a way to use them. And here it is!

  24. Karin says:

    I’ve tried Brookside Chocolates before from BJ’s. They’re so delicious that I find it hard not to eat them straight out of the bag! (k.skalina@gmail.com)

  25. Erica says:

    I love citrus ice cream! That look creamy and amazing!Those little balls sound delicious! I would love those on top of my ice cream or my favorite way to eat chocolate is (Warm brownies topped with ice cream)

  26. Amy says:

    My friend’s parents have a Meyer lemon tree. My friend just happens to live down the street from me. She brings me bags of them. And then I proceed to jump up and down, clapping and squealing, like a 6 year old.

  27. Danielle says:

    My favorite way to prepare chocolate is for my husband. I’m not a chocolate lover, but he is, so I delight in seeing him enjoy it!

  30. JC says:

  31. This ice cream is seriously calling to me (which says a lot since I am so picky about lemony desserts). Last year I impulsed bought meyer lemons at costco which was a fun and good decision:-)

  32. Fave way is just by itself, or in cookies, or melted for brownies!

  33. Lynn says:

    Someone gave me some homemade Meyer lemon curd at Christmas. I’m saving it for a special occasion. Your ice cream looks yummy!

  34. Anonymous says:

  39. Dee says:

    I love to eat chocolate melted over ice cream!

  40. T says:

    I love chocolate with berries paired with a dark red wine!

  41. I’ve been doing an oil massage in the morning with lemon oil (weird yoga thing) and I have been thinking about squeezing meyer lemon in there. Instead, I’ll just eat meyer lemon ice cream I think.

  42. Jessica Day says:

    I love chocolate in so many forms – as ice cream melted over fruit or dried, candied ginger, in a mug of warm milk…I’d have to say my favourite way to eat it is in a dark cinema with a great movie, letting pieces of dark chocolate melt in my mouth and savouring every last piece! Thanks for hosting, and lovely post on meyer lemons. Mmm…

  43. Joanne your video is great! I have been thinking about those Benedicts since you posted them – they look awesome.

  45. I am SO buying a Myer lemon tree to plant on Serendipity Farm! I am sure I could muddle with this recipe to make it vegan and then I could make this gorgous icecream for both Steve and I 🙂 Cheers Joanne for another wonderful recipe 🙂

  46. Very smooth and creamy and lemon is my favourite too.
    Cool video, Joanne. You reminds me of Amy in Big Band Theory 😉

  47. Jessie says:

    You’re like my buying-Meyer-lemons-in-excess sister! As I still have about a pound of these sweet, gorgeous fruits left, I’ll definitely try this recipe.

    My favorite way to have chocolate? Must I choose one?? I suppose … in a chocolate lava cake with cold ice cream (vanilla, or Meyer lemon awesomeness!).

  48. emily says:

    I like fondue a lot…or sometimes plain by itself is yummy as well.

  58. I want to make this soon! I made a lemon-lime sorbet this summer and it was yummy, so I’m sure I would love this as well.

  59. Eileen says:

    Why have I never made meyer lemon ice cream?? We HAVE a TREE. Something is clearly wrong with me. (Or my freezer is still too full to fit the ice cream maker. Actually, that’s probably it.) Needless to say, this looks SO GOOD that I am resorting to allcaps.

    Oh yeah, my favorite way to eat chocolate: frequently. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    Straight up, slightly melted in a cookie, or a brownie 🙂

  62. This isn’t for the contest, but your video is ADORABLE! And it’s okay that I don’t like the traditional sauce, right? Your goat cheese sounds much tastier! Really cool to see how you are in real life!

  63. sandra says:

    I like to eat chocolate by the handful while watching bad movies on my couch.

    I love your wholefoods video.

  64. Love Meyer lemons! However, maybe not quite as much as I love eating chocolate and drinking wine. Those two go hand and hand as my favorite down time activity!

  65. Hotly Spiced says:

    There must be something wrong with my computer screen – I thought they were blueberries. And chocolate is so much better. My favourite way to eat chocolate is at the movies. I just feel that eating chocolate bars at the movies is the only guilt-free chocolate overindulging experience I have xx

    I love chocolate in ice cream the best!

  74. Any form of chocolate would be my favorite!!!
    I just saw Meyer lemons at my local grocery store, so I grabbed a bag. Let the fun begin!

  75. Oh my lord, this ice cream sounds amazing!!! I totally wanna try it with my new ice cream maker. Do you know, I’ve never cooked with Meyer lemons?! I know, ridiculous.

    My favorite way to eat chocolate is any way I can 😉 I actually think I like it best when melted and mixed into baked goods/puddings, etc….as opposed to like straight up choco pieces on their own or in things.

  76. Beth says:

    My favorite way to enjoy chocolate is in Ina Garten’s Orange Chocolate Chunk cake. I get weak in the knees just thinking about it.

  77. Claudia says:

    Until you said otherwise, I was thinking those blueberries look really good to go on the tangy ice cream. Either way, still delicious.

  86. Christine says:

    Meyer’s lemons are the Rolls Royce of lemons, the original old-fashioned lemonade lemon and sheer heaven! The.Boy. is silly. There is SUCH a difference compared to Eurekas. Would love to taste your ice cream, looks heavenly.
    I don’t eat much chocolate but love Godiva hearts and Trader Joe’s dark chocolate Fair Trade brand. Enjoy the ice cream…drool.

  87. I often go on kicks where all I want is chocolate (in the process of one right now), and I will take chocolate any way I can. My favorite way right now is to stir some into my steel cut oats.

  88. Kathy says:

    I love to eat ice cream either plain or with cashews and chocolate syrup.

  89. Tandy says:

    I was hoping I could be sent some of the ice cream! I think I’ll have to bring some of the Meyer lemons home with me when we go overseas 🙂

  90. OK you are a genius using them in ice cream. Thank you for not making sorbet! No one makes citrus ice cream. I think you’re going to cause a sensation that will sweep the nation. 🙂 Second, I’ll stay out of the giveaway b/c I was lucky enough to receive those chocolates from a friend early last year. I had never heard of them but they were so good! Now I’m seeing them all over the blogosphere.

  91. I love to eat chocolate straight from the package. There is nothing like a great tasting piece of chocolate. Chocolate and fruit especially strawberries are great too! I love homemade ice cream. Just know ever get the chance to make it.

  92. I’m not pleased with my Myer lemon tree, which has not been forthcoming with its fruit. Bah! So, back to buying them. I made a similar recipe a few years ago, and it’s become my top favorite. A doctor-to-be and a food video? Super woman hero, you are. Lemon is my chocolate, but lemon and chocolate– sounds perfect to me.

  93. teresa says:

    it was so fun to see you in person! great video!

    i’m sooo glad you posted this recipe. i got my hub an ice cream maker and i will be requesting this pronto.

    i love chocolate too, usually eating it straight is my preference 🙂

    I love chocolate in any form 🙂 but my favorite way would probably be chocolate-covered fruit or pretzels!

  113. Martha says:

    Why can’t I buy Meyer lemons here? I got some from a friend who has a tree last year and fell in love! Never have seen them in the stores or markets around here. The ice cream sounds perfect too. My favorite way to eat chocolate? Putting it straight in my mouth of course 😉

  114. Velva says:

    My favorite way to eat chocolate is with wine of course!

    I have the pleasure of having a Meyer lemon tree in my backyard. This year, the tree produced probably close to 200 Meyer lemons. I was giving them away, juicing them, preserving, baking and mind vinaigrettes. It was nuts! but, I would of traded it.

    Love that your post focused on Meyer lemons.

    Velva

  115. Velva says:

    Ooops! Typo. I meant to type “making” vinaigrettes … And I would have “not” traded it.

  116. there is no ONE favorite way to have chocolate…

  117. where did you get the lemons and not have to get a 2nd mortgage? i saw the price of them at whole foods and it was INSANE!

  118. Reeni Pisano says:

    Love your video Joanne! And this bomb of a lemony ice cream! Irresistible! Don’t enter me for the chocolates – I tried them too and loved them. So unique.

  119. Laura says:

    Don’t enter me in the giveaway (I hate fruit with chocolate) but love the ice cream. An online friend has offered to mail me meyer lemons from her tree and it is taking all my self restraint to not badger her about whether she has mailed them yet lol…

  120. What a fun giveaway! And dude, I am so not judging. Meyer lemons are my life too. I buy the costco-sized bags there.

    And this ice cream – yeah, needs to happen like now.

  121. rachel says:

  132. Oh I love Meyer Lemons! I never had one until we moved to California. They grow on trees in peoples back yards. so wonderful!! My husband was just telling me the other day how much he loves the hot fudge cake I make. Moist chocolate cake with ice cream on top and homemade chocolate sauce on top of that!!

  133. Ahhh, YUM. Just as I got the ice cream attachment for my mixer for Xmas. Now I will have to be on the hunt for Meyer lemons. When you finish this in your freezer come check out avocado ice cream on my blog! Homemade ice cream is my sanity this winter, apparently.

    Oh–my fav way to eat chocolate is with a little fruit, and a lot of red wine!

  134. I love meyer lemons! I enjoy buying individually wrapped pieces of chocolate so that I treat myself to a piece here and there…and not feel guilty about a whole bag being open.

    I love eating chocolate as hot chocolate! Nothing better than that especially with the weather we’ve been having in the midwest 🙂

    My Mom made Lemon Ice Cream for years…… your recipe is a little different, so I can’t wait to try it… also I will eat chocolate any way, any where, any time…… especially brownies….
