I halved the ingredients as I didn't have the required amount of creme fraiche.I whisked together the milk and sugar over a very low heat so the sugar melted and allowed to cool. Then I added the other ingredients and whisked and in to the ice cream machine. The ice cream was delicious. A hint of lemon, really refreshing and it worked well together as I did the roasted stone fruits (Aug '12). A recipe that I will be doing again. The amount made is plenty for for the two of us, with some left to have again

@Staceyjm - you'll find creme fraiche in the cream/yoghurt section of your local shop. It comes in a tub, similar to cream or natural or Greek yoghurt. Hope that helps.

I tried this, nice but too much work with all the mixing etc. I still think its hard to beat the no churn ice cream recipe on this site. It works perfectly every time.
