Turkish dondurmas are intensely flavored citrus ices. This intense flavor is developed as the lemon and orange peels are boiled with the syrup during the cooking stage, then steeped in the syrup for about an hour. The ice is different from granitas because of the way dondurmas incorporate fruit into their syrup. From Sorbets! by Jim Tarantino.
