Sara made three delicious recipes during her demo: Beer Batter Shrimp w/ Tartar Sauce, Roasted Vegetables and Fresh Ricotta Bruschetta, and Hot Banana Split Crepes. We were served samples of each dish, and trust us, they were amazing!

1 tsp. grated lime peel

3 cups half and half

10 drops of green food coloring (optional)

Mix sugar and gelatin in a bowl. Turn on your stove to medium heat and heat up milk close to a boil, constantly stirring to avoid burning the bottom. Add mixture to gelatin-sugar mixture. Stir until fully dissolved. Using a grater, grate the skin of a lime to make one teaspoon of lime peel. Squeeze 2/3 cup of lime juice into a small bowl. Add juice and lime peel to your milk-gelatin-sugar mixture. Finally, add the 3 cups of half and half and 10 drops of food coloring. Pour into ice cream maker.
