    Dee514's Note:

    It was very hot and humid here today, so I made some Italian Lemon Ices to help cool off :) I have included both versions because most people have a definite preference for either the "water ices", or the creamier "Roman Style" ices. One of my fondest summer memories as a child, was when my grandmother would "slip" me a dime, so I could go down to the neighborhood Italian bakery and buy a cup of lemon ices....yum!

      I made the water ices and it is an easy treat for those hot summery days. Also made some wih other citrus fruit - mandarins and grapefruit also worked well.

      I made the water ices, also and it's exactly as I remember when my mom and I would make it when I was a kid. I tripled the recipe this go around 'cuz we went through the first batch in no time. So easy...no fuss, no mess. Thanks for posting. I can tell this is going to be a staple this summer as it's already blazing hot here in Michigan! Oh, I didn't add any lemon peel...too lazy and hot to grate it and it tasted perfect!

      Water ices came out great. I put some of mine in ice cube trays so it set up alot faster and was able to have some within an hour or so. Plan to try it with lime as well.
