September in So Cal is still summer (therefore, melon sorbet)
In So Cal, we are still in summer (like it or not) and while the rest of the states move on to cooler temperatures, I'll continue to enjoy these last vestiges of summer.
This week, I would like to share a few of my favorite recipes for enjoying the perfection that is summer produce.
Pictured above is a duo of cantaloupe sorbet and watermelon sorbet. I pureed and strained the fruit and then followed my standard sorbet recipe here. The main difference is that I use about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of pureed fruit and add 1/2 to 1 cup of simple syrup for the base mixture.
(Even Harriet was a big fan and as I was so focused on my camera frame, did not realize how close she had snuck up on the photography session until it was too late.)
I really liked the way the sorbet pictures turned out, so here are a few more (and an additional Harriet photobomb).
