Refreshingly simple – this might just be the easiest dessert I’ve ever made! # 106: Lemon Lime Sorbet
I mentioned in a recent post that I LOVE doing a year-end clean out. That includes the pantry. Nobody wants the same jar of marmalade sitting on their shelf two years in a row – what’s the fun in that?
This marmalade in particular is pretty special. A lovely woman at my parents’ church has been turning lemons into marmalade for several decades to raise money for the community food bank. I’ve been trained to keep smaller jars and give them to my mom so she can pass them on to Naomi.
These dishes add a lovely retro vibe to dessert. They belonged to my great-grandmother Gladys, and my mom remembers eating red Jell-O with whipped cream out of them at her house. The classiest of desserts, ya know? If you’ve ever seen “My Best Friend’s Wedding” you’ll know that creme brulee can never be Jell-O.
Peek my new whisk! The handle has glitter in it. It’s now best friends with my Mickey Mouse glove spatula. Anywho, in addition to lemon marmalade, I also had a jar of lime curd that needed a new life. I used about 3/4 cup of marmalade, a 1/4 cup curd, and 2 & 1/4 cup water. That’s it!
Whisk until the curd is fully incorporated. It’ll look like opaque lemonade.
Pour it into whatever freeze-friendly container you have handy. Whatsup bread pan!
Pop into the freezer overnight and then scoop with an ice cream or cookie scoop once solid. So easy and refreshing! Garnish with mint or another fresh green herb of choice.
