Sicilian Lemon Frost – Gelo di Limone

Sicilian Lemon Frost -Gelo di Limone

Frost is a typical dessert of the peasant Sicilians tradition, made with seasonal fruit, during and introduced by the Arab domination.

 In these days of stifling heat, the SICILIAN LEMON FROST, a light and refreshing dessert made with water, lemon juice, sugar, and starch, to thicken, could not be missing from the kitchen of Solo-Dolce.

You know very well that my blog is not a “dietetic” blog but it is a blog that is very attentive to the products, like if they are organic, just like  these lemons for this dessert.

To make the lemon Juice I’ve been using a different hand juicer, this time I used Metal Lemon Lime Squeezer by Zulay Kitchen.
