canteloup sorbet


My mom came over one weekend and brought us three fragrant and ripe canteloup melons.  I immediately knew that I wanted to make sorbet with it.


I went to my favorite ice cream book, David Lebovitz's "The Perfect Scoop" and found a simple recipe that just used canteloup, sugar, salt, and lime juice.


The resulting sorbet was crisp and refreshing!  Perfect for a hot summer day.

  4. Oh yeah, this looks totally refreshing. I think I really need to invest on an ice cream machine and David's cookbook!
