1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2- 2 cups sugar * See Notes
2 cups Lemon juice (fresh or Real Lemon)
1 cup Lemon Curd (homemade recipe HERE or use store bought)
Combine sugar and water in small sauce pan, heat, stirring, till sugar dissolves. Place in bowl in fridge or freezer till very cold .
When cold stir in lemon juice and whisk in lemon curd till smooth, pour into a ice cream freezer and process according to your machines instructions ( I process 30 minutes then freeze for 4-5 hours)
**NOTES: This is softer set than homemade ice cream, and I find it needs more freezer time.
** Adjust sugar to your taste we use the 1 1/2 cups of sugar, but we like things tart, you may prefer to use the 2 cups if you like it sweeter!

Beat with a stand or hand mixer until foamy, add sugar, continue to beat until soft peaks form, add lemon juice and extract, beat just to incorporated and spoon into a prepared graham cracker crust(will be quite high, just pile it in.) Place immediately into the freezer and freeze for four hours or overnight. Can be cut and eaten straight from the freezer for a refreshing summer treat!
