Cantaloupe Sorbet

cs2The time I’ve recently spent in warm tropical climates has me feeling kind of sweet. While a lot of people are home making hot chocolate or chicken noodle soup, I tried my hand at sorbet. I know, it’s the heart of winter and I’m making frozen dessert! Here’s what I used…

Ingredients:

3 cups cantaloupe (approx. 1/2 cantaloupe)

1 cup water

1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions:

Step 1: Cut half cantaloupe into cubes.

Step 2: Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan, and stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Once the mixture begins to boil, remove from heat and pour into an air tight glass jar. Refrigerate the simple syrup for a couple of hours.

Step 3: Blend the cantaloupe in a food processor until the texture is smooth, then add the chilled simple syrup and blend some more.

Step 4: Pour the cantaloupe mixture into a freezer safe bowl or tray, and freeze until almost firm.

Step 5: Scoop and Enjoy!

{Step 5 should have been:  Remove cantaloupe mixture from freezer and transfer back into blender (or bowl) and blend, puree, or whip some more. Then freeze and enjoy. I’ll get it right next time!}

I don’t have a petite ice cream scoop to make the sorbet look pretty, but the taste wasn’t affected. It was still pretty darn good!
