Tangerine Sorbet

23 Jan

Barry brought home a large box of tangerines from school.  He spent days eating  tangerines when I came up with an idea to google for a sorbet recipe.  That evening I squeezed about 20 tangerines to get the juice for the sorbet.  I made the sorbet and we kind of forgot about it.  Christmas was over and Larry was going back on the road.  So on a Tuesday night Mariya and I were watching Cupcake Wars when I thought about the sorbet and asked if she wanted some.  We each had a scoop and then she went back for seconds.  Well the news spread like wild fire, this sorbet was yummy!  It was gone within a couple days.  Larry was coming home for new years and commented that he can’t wait to try the sorbet I had made but we forgotten to eat while he was home.  I had to break the news to him that it was now gone however I had more tangerines and would make some before he got home.  I squeezed about 4 cups of juice to use the remaining tangerines and I drank the extra cup.  Well you know what happens when you drink that much citrus juice before bed?  You get heartburn because the acids in the stomach are having quite the time.  Anyways the sorbet enjoyed by all and now it’s gone until the next time someone comes home with a basket full.
