 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      2/3   c            Sugar
    4                    Egg yolks
    1       c            Milk -- at room temperature
    1       pn           Salt
    1                    Lemon peel strip (2-in)
    1       c            Whipping cream
   BEAT SUGAR AND EGG YOLKS together until pale yellow
   and very thick. Slowly add milk, beating gently to
   avoid a build-up of foam. Add lemon peel and stir in
   salt. Transfer mixture to the top of a double boiler
   with an inch of boiling water in the bottom half.
   Regulate heat so water remains at a low boil, and stir
   continuously 8 minutes. Custard will thicken enough to
   coat the spoon, and surface foam will disappear.
   Immediately remove top of double boiler and set it in
   a large bowl of cold water. Stir 2 minutes to cool
   custard somewhat. Then transfer it to a bowl, cover,
   and set in refrigerator to chill thoroughly. Also
   chill whipping cream. When ready to proceed, whip
   cream into soft peaks. Remove lemon peel from custard
   and fold in whipped cream. Transfer mixture to ice
   cream machine and freeze according to machine’s
   directions. Makes 1 Quart
