Cherry sorbet - the perfect weapon against sweltering hot summers.

Lemon Granita Recipe
This is a yummy lemon granita recipe with a hit of vodka to keep things interesting.
Leftover lemons are perfect for making delicious lemonade. Add a hit of vodka and you have yourself a pretty fine beverage. For those really hot summer days, I like to take it to the next level and make lemon granita. One of the easiest frozen desserts you can make.

Make fresh persimmon sorbet at home using only a few simple ingredients. You can't beat this treat on a hot summers day.
Growing up in New Zealand, I had a great friend who's family had an orchard of persimmons. I can devour a truck load of fruit so when I first set eyes on these fruit trees I was pretty excited. However, excitement soon led to disappointment as I bit into my first persimmon. It wasn't a bad taste, but it didn't really appeal either. I didn't touch a persimmon again until ...

Mangoes are a fantastic fruit eaten on their own. They're even better when they're magically turned into fresh sorbet. A refreshing, sweet dessert with a bit of tart to balance it all out. This sorbet tastes a lot like the Weis tubs you can buy in the supermarket. The main difference is making it at home means you don't need to use any added stabilisers.
