1. Scoop the crème fraîche into a large bowl. Sift in the icing sugar and grate in the lemon zest. Stir together till combined. Set to one side.
2. Pour the double cream into a separate large bowl and whisk till it forms stiff peaks. Spoon the crème fraîche mixture into the bowl with the cream and fold together till combined and smooth. Scoop half a jar of lemon curd into the bowl and swirl through the cream mixture. Transfer the mixture into a freezer-suitable tub and freeze for 8 hrs, or overnight.
3. Get the ice cream out of the freezer about 15 mins before serving to allow it to soften a little. Scoop into bowls and serve.
