Tom bought limes to make himself Margaritas. I used the lime to make zest for my final letter for the 26 Things.
As for me. I swore off Margaritas. Can anyone guess why?
Today I made homemade cantaloupe sorbet/ice. But, just the same it is so refreshing. I know what we call cantaloupes are really muskmellons. Then why do we call them cantaloupes? I don’t think that I have ever had a genuine cantaloupe.
1 cantaloupe peeled, seeded and then cut into cubes
1/2-2/3 cup of sugar depending on the sweetness of the fruit
2 Tablespoons of light corn syrup
1 cup of water
Place cubed cantaloupe and sugar into a medium bowl and mix well. Place this is the refrigerator for a couple of hours. After chilling, place the sweetened melon cubes into a blender and add the corn syrup and water. Blend well.
Transfer this mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufactor’s instructions.
Place the frozen sorbet into a covered shallow, plastic container and freeze for a few hours before serving.
