Mmmmm. . .Strawberries. . .

>> Monday, February 5, 2007

It's been cold and rainy here lately. Not cold and crisp with a clear blue sky, but cold and gray and damp. A recent post at Soule Mama inspired me to to show some pictures of what we're doing to fight the February Funk. Jo asked for strawberries at the grocery store. I wasn't excited about off-season strawberries and we were going to dinner with friends, so we decided to dip the strawberries in chocolate to take them along for dessert. Yum. The bag of lemons in the background became sorbet. Fresh strawberries and lemon sorbet. I'm not thinking of summer at all. No. . . not me. Jo was just thinking about scraping every last bit of chocolate out of the dipping cup.

Want to make the sorbet?
2 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. water
1 1/2 c. lemon juice (that's about 12-14 smallish lemons)
2 T lemon zest

Mix the water and the sugar in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Take it off the heat and set it aside to cool. Add the lemon juice and zest (and some of the pulp too) and pop it in the refrigerator to chill. Freeze it in an ice cream machine. Enjoy!
