Apologies again for the blog break. They're not intentional. Life just catches up with me! Onto the recipes!
Living in Texas gives me a new appreciation for sweat. Summer here is like living on the surface of the sun, perhaps next to a lake, or really, in Florida. Being a SoCal girl at heart, humidity slays me. Short of spending my life's fortune at my favorite yogurt shop, Tomunchi - I make sorbet.
God-It's-Hot Orange Sorbet
- 2.5 cups of water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 orange rind pieces
- 2 2/3 cups of fresh orange juice (no pulp!)
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it boils. Add the orange strips to the pan and stir. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Retrieve orange pieces with a spoon and discard. (You can also strain this in a sieve if you're an overachiever). Set the mixture aside to cool.
Add orange juice and lemon juice to cooled sugar mixture and mix WELL. Add the mixture to either a) the ice cream container of the ice cream maker you registered for when you got married and never use or b) a small glass pan (you need something freezer safe!). Put in freezer for one extremely-long hour and then serve!
