Tart Lemon Ice with Crushed Strawberries

Photo: Oxmoor House

Making lemon ice always feels like a fun science project. You pour cooled, sweet liquid into a shallow container and wait for ice crystals to form. Then you scrape it with a fork until you have chunky crystals of juicy ice. It's kind of a mix between a snow cone and a fancy sorbet.
