Cantelope Sorbet

24 Sep

Larry is always bringing home fresh fruits and vegetables.  I think he buys too much and can’t eat it all.  I try to utilize what he brings home but sometimes it does go to waste.  He brought home a cantelope so I decided to make some sorbet with it.  I would just ordinarily eat it but Mariya had gotten a large Edible Arrangements from her fiancee that included melon.  I can only eat so much!  I must say that cantelope was the best tasting I have had for this season and it was almost a shame to not just eat it.  Almost! So I got my Vita Mix blender ready to puree some cantelope and made sure my bowls were in the freezer for the ice cream maker. I just threw this together.  While it was churning I went outside with the puppies to let them play.  I was sitting in the hammock and I can see directly into the kitchen.  I saw Larry stealing a taste of the sorbet while it was churning.  He’s one of my biggest fans. We love this sorbet, it is so refreshing.   The cantelope was pretty large so I had to use both my freezer bowls to mix this, it really made alot which is good for us as Mariya can tear this stuff up!
