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.


  1. Looks like I need to get some canteloupe. Great flavor choice for an icy treat-delicious.

  2. I can imagine what great flavour this would be! Perfect for hot, sweaty summer...

  3. Mmm I've never heard of this flavor of sorbet -- very summery and refreshing!

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