Thursday Recipe

I think we entered day 10 of 100+ degree heat here in the DFW, so when I came across this recipe today all I could think was, "this sounds so refreshing!" I grew up with lemon slush - Del's lemonade is a rite of passage in Rhode Island (although I discovered today that it can actually be found in 36 states - who knew? I bet they're run by Rhode Islanders). This recipe from Sunny Anderson made me think of that sweet summer treat.


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup lime juice


Fill a large bowl with ice water. Place another bowl inside so it's surrounded on all sides by the ice water. In a medium saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. When sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and add lime juice. Pour into bowl sitting in the ice bath to cool lime mixture, about 15 minutes. Pour mixture into a 10 by 12-inch baking dish that's sitting on a sheet tray and put in the freezer. After 1 1/2 hours, remove from freezer and scrape the ice with a fork, being sure to mix the softer center with the more frozen outer edges. Put back into the freezer for another 1 1/2 hours. Before serving, scrape again using the fork.
