Another experiment with the ice cream maker (some friends who had one and got another as a gift passed the gift on to me).
I had two watermelons and a cantaloupe from the CSA last week. This was inspired by Jane Grigson's recipe for watermelon sorbet as her melon sherbet has egg whites and all sorts of things in it.
- one cantaloupe, seeded and puréed
- one star anise (maybe two next time?)
- 1½ c. water
- one cup sugar (I might use a bit less next time)
- juice of one lemon
It's a bit sweet, but not overly. Very melony. As with the lemon kefir ice cream, I think a bit of alcohol would keep it from freezing solid. Something neutral like vodka, two tablespoons, might be good. I didn't have any either way.
