{What's Cooking?} Cool Down with Homemade Italian Ice

This week's What's Cooking? recipe will help you beat the heat this summer: Homemade Italian Ice. Not only is this recipe easy to make, but it is a crowd pleaser for young and old alike. Enjoy!

Italian Ice

- 1 cup water
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice (you can substitute with any flavoring of your choice)
- Ice cube molds
- Food processor

Mix 1 cup water to 2 cups sugar. Bring to a boil while stirring to make a simple sugar. Remove from heat and add lemon juice (and a little zest if you like). Pour into ice cube molds and place in freezer. Once close to frozen (it will never fully freeze) remove from freezer and place cubes into food processor. Process until slushy. Garnish with lemon rind or fresh fruit.
