Recipe: Lemon Sherbet

I'm very, very happy to share with you a recipe for sherbet.  But if you decide to make it, please promise me that you will pronounce it "sher-bet" not "sher-burt."  Like the added "x" in the imaginary word "expresso," that extra "r" just don't need to be there, baby.  Trust me.  I wouldn't like to you.

Lemon Sherbet

3 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
Finely grated zest of one lemon
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (2 - 3 lemons)

Pour one cup of milk in a pot with sugar and lemon zest.
Stir until sugar is melted.
Remove from heat.
Pour in rest of milk and chill for 2 hours.
Set up ice cream maker.

Remove milk mixture from refrigerator.
Whisk milk mixture while adding lemon juice.
If milk mixture begins to curdle, don't freak out.  Just whisk ever more vigorously until it is smooth.
Pour immediately into ice cream maker.
