Lemon Ice

6 Large Lemons

2 Cups Sugar

4 Cups Water

1 Cup fresh Lemon Juice

Zest from 2 lemons (2 tsp)

Heat lemons for 60 seconds in microwave and press down and roll on table top to loosen up the juice.
Wash the rinds of the lemons, and remove the zest from two of them. I don't usually measure out the zest.

Place the water and sugar in a large saucepan and add the lemon zest. Stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. then boil 5 minutes. Remove lemon zest with a sieve, and let it cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile cut the lemons in half and juice them all,then pour the juice through a sieve to remove pulp and seeds. Mix the sugar water with the lemon juice and pour into 4-5 ice cube trays or a plastic freezer container. Freeze overnight.

Set the ice cube trays out for 5 minutes and they should pop out so you can place them in a freezer bag or container. I usually smash the soft Lemon Ice cubes with a fork and eat them with a spoon. OR you can just scrape layers from the lemon ice surface if you freeze in a block in a plastic container.
