Ingredients

  • 2 lemongrass stalks
  • cups water
  • 6 medium yellow bell peppers
  • 2 cups cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup fresh ginger juice (or blend 2 tablespoons fresh ginger with ½ cup water and strain)
  • Fresh mint or sliced jalapeno, for garnish

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, puree lemongrass with water until mostly smooth. Pour mixture into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, until lemongrass becomes more fragrant. Remove from heat, cover pan, and let lemongrass steep for 20 minutes.
  • Cut bell peppers in half; remove seeds, and place peppers on a sheet pan with the skin up. Broil peppers until the skin has blistered, cover in foil, and set aside to cool. Once cool, gently remove skin. Place peppers in a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  • Strain lemongrass from water, and pour into a saucepan. Over medium heat, stir in sugar until dissolved and mixture begins to simmer. Remove from heat, and cool.
  • Pour this simple syrup into the bell pepper puree. Mix in lemon and ginger juice.
  • If you have an ice cream machine, put mixture into machine and follow the instructions. Otherwise, put parchment paper over a cookie sheet, and pour mixture over it. Put tray in freezer. Once completely frozen, break puree into pieces and blend immediately in a food processor when ready to serve. Garnish with mint or sliced jalapeno.
