We have been lucky that this week will not be as warm as the last week. Our temperatures for this week range from 93 to 99 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s not as scary as last week were we hit a record 106 but still these temperatures are not something to be taken lightly. So how do you enjoy the summer breeze when you’re invited to an outside Pot Luck with an array of friends? You plan, plan, plan and succeed. I asked our Baker, Dani, on what she would take to a Pot Luck. The first thing she mentioned would be something to help keep people cool. What a smart cookie. No one wants to get dehydrated 1 hour into the festivities.
So let’s get started with a Strawberry Sorbet. Below is an easy recipe on how to make a strawberry sorbet. The tricky part will be keeping it cool. I choose strawberry because I love strawberries but feel free to make your own invention!
1. In a saucepan mix together 1 cup of sugar along with 1 cup of water. Whisk it until all the sugar is dissolved.
2. Then transfer the mixture into a blender. (or a food processor if you have one) Add in your frozen strawberries and blend away! Add lemon juice to your taste. I’m obsessed with lemons (I put them on everything). Blend, blend, blend away until it is to your desired thickness. Let it cool completely after that.
3. Last but not least put it in an ice cream maker or you can also freeze it in an airtight container. Once it’s done just go ahead and scoop it out and add mint leaves on top.
It’ll be tasty, refreshing and everyone will love you for keeping them hydrated. It’s as easy as 1,2,3.
