Hi! I'm in the middle of making lemon ice cream but I'm having a hard time finding a recipe without eggs. I just wanted to use cream, milk,
lemon juice, orange juice (blood orange) and zest. I've had the juice soaking the sugar but I'm scared to add in the cream for fear it will curdle. My mother was no help. Any advice before I take the plunge and potentially waste the precious meyer lemons and blood oranges?

If you want to get creative, you could throw some whole spices into the simmering syrup to get more flavor, like a star anise or some strands of saffron (which will add more pretty yellow color naturally).
Google some recipes with agar agar (available at Asian stores and health food stores). It will replace eggs and make a very creamy texture of the ice cream.
Thanks Gingerroot. That's really helpful. It's really hard to find an egg free citrus ice cream recipe so at least now I know it will work AND I have something to use my fancy limes for.
I have made it many times, using tangerines, with great results. It is sooo good!!
