The receipt (recipe) for Cherry Ice Cream directs to squeeze in one lemon. The lemon was squeezed through the sieve to prevent any seeds or pulp from entering the pewter bason of the cherry infused cream. Note the color change directly after the lemon juice was added. Adding a squeezed lemon is very typical for 18th century ice cream receipts and most be done carefully and timely so the results are not curds.
