Cool ‘n’ Hot: Jalapeño-Lime Ice

Print Friendly
JalapenoJalapeño-Lime Ice This dish is sweet and hot, cool and spicy at the same time. Enjoy after dinner or as a palate cleanser. Either way, your taste buds are in for a tongue-tingling treat.  3 cups water 2 cups sugar 8 jalapeños, seeded and coarsely chopped 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped mint leaves 1/2 cup fresh lime juice 4 cups ice cubes Mint sprigs, for garnish Lime slices, for garnish Place the water, sugar, jalapeños, mint and lime juice in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Strain the liquid, and place in a covered nonreactive container in the freezer for 6 hours or up to 2 days. (The mixture won't freeze but will become slushy and icy.) Using a cleaver or heavy object, slightly crush the ice cubes. Place ice cubes in a blender along with the jalapeño-lime mixture. Blend until the ice is finely crushed. Serve immediately, garnished with sprigs of fresh mint and lime slices. Makes 6 servings. From "Hot, Hotter, Hottest" by Janet Hazen
