sorbet with monkey
Thursday, July 29
I am not counting how many times I have written this here by now, but it was another hot, sweaty day. The hot and sweaty weather defininately made me want something nice and cold, refreshing, and easy to make, when it is a busy day for me like this.
It meant that this is time to try that one - the one I had found quite some time ago and went back over and over again - this one; sorbet in a sack!
For the procedure, I recommend you definately rather check out the original recipe site linked above because it is very cute and funny, so I am not going further in detail. And what I did was, instead of following the direction, I threw my ziploc bag of fruit juice into the freezer! Ehhhhhh, I know it was a whole lot of deal-breaking, but that was what I did, and it still worked and the sorbet was tasty.
In place of mango juice used in the recipe, I mixed some mango nectarines (yes, I still had some left) with hand-squeezed orange juice. You'd probably like it dosed with sugar, but I preferred not this time. My sorbet thus wasn't sweet like the ones we usually eat, yet very very fruity and was like real fruit - well, it was!
