No, I’m not praising the career of Vanilla Ice. I’m thinking of a cold dessert to help beat the heat. The weather around here has finally figured out it’s summer, and, well, anything that helps me keep my cool is a good thing.
And so it is that I turn, once again, to that paragon of culinary tomes the Household Searchlight Recipe Book to see how the average homemaker of the late 1930’s did the trick. Lo and behold, there’s an entire page of delicious sounding recipes for various ices.
Today I’m going to share the (ridiculously simple) recipe for Pineapple Ice:
1 Cup crushed pineapple
1 Cup water
2 Tblsp lemon juice
1/3 Cup sugar
Combine water and sugar. Heat to boiling. Boil for five minutes. Cool. Add pineapple and lemon juice. Freeze. Makes four servings.
