The Twister Fruit Picker®: Lemons

Fresh picked lemons are a delicious treat and The Twister Fruit Picker® is the ideal fruit picking tool for lemon trees. Customer reviews tell us that the reason The Twister Fruit Picker® works so well for picking lemons is its capability to slither into dense trees without getting caught on the branches.

The thorns in lemon trees can also get you, and this tool allows you to pick inner tree fruit without injury to you or the fruit. It works well for both small and large lemons. It is easy to purchase! Just go to The Twister Fruit Picker website that links directly to our Amazon marketplace.

After you have picked those delicious lemons with The Twister Fruit Picker®, we have found the perfect light, refreshing lemon ice cream pie! This recipe received rave reviews from friends and family! It is the perfect way to end a special meal and easy to make!

You will need:

  • A graham cracker pie crust (follow the recipe on the Graham Cracker box or purchase a ready-made crust)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-2 TBL lemon peel
  • ! quart vanilla ice cream – we recommend Breyers Natural Vanilla because its lighter texture pairs well with the lemon.

Combine whipping cream and half and half and mix at high speed. Add sugar gradually with lemon juice and lemon peel. Beat at high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Pour into a shallow pan and freeze until firm. Use a spatula or knife to break into smaller pieces and place back in a large bowl. Let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes to soften. Beat again at low to medium speed until the mixture is soft and fluffy – it will look soft but not melted. Pour back in shallow pan and put in freezer. Place 2 ½ cups of vanilla ice cream in mixer bowl and beat until soft. Spread evenly in the bottom of the graham cracker crust. Take lemon mixture out of freezer and spread over the top of the vanilla layer. Sprinkle a few graham cracker crumbs over top of pie and refreeze until firm – slice and serve just before eating!
