1 Tbl grated lemon rind

2/3 cup lemon juice

2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

½ cup water

6 eggs

1 ½ cups sugar

2 cups heavy cream



In a saucepan sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Let stand for 10 minutes, then place over very low heat until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and cool. Combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at high speed until they are very thick and light (about seven to eight minutes). While eggs and sugar are beating, whip 1 ½ cups of cream in a small bowl. Refrigerate. Combine lemon rind and juice with cooled gelatin; pour into the egg-sugar mixture and continue beating until well blended. Remove bowl from mixer. Chill briefly (approx. five minutes) either in the refrigerator or by placing the bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice water. Stir mixture frequently, just until it’s thick enough to mound. Fold in whipped cream with a rubber scraper until no streaks of white remain. Chill for at least three hours or until set. Beat the remaining cream and use for topping.
