Mmmmm, refreshingly tart, but not too tart. Just right sweet. A GREAT after dinner dessert because of it. But...I made a couple of (minor) deviations. I made a lemon-lime version, using half of each. Also, after juicing enough lemons and limes to get that 3/4 cup of juice I found I only had about half the zest required. I wasn't about to have "naked" limes and lemons laying around, so I used the 1-1/2 T. of zest and called it a day. It was perfect! In fact, I'm not so sure I would have enjoyed this any more using twice as much zest and may even have enjoyed it less. I loved that the recipe called for my preferred ratio of 2:1 heavy cream to half-and-half and, while I was a little concerned about how the added large amount of lemon juice would affect the mouth feel, I needn't have worried. In spite of adding essentially 3/4 cup of "water" to the mix, the resulting ice cream was still creamy and rich, with no unpleasant iciness. This tasted darn close to a Key Lime or lemon pie and I'm thinking some coarsely chopped graham crackers folded in at the end would be awesome good.
