Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

meyer lemon sorbet

this simple recipe only requires the best lemons around which are often difficult to find. most often they are only in the stores from November through May.  i happened to see these at my local Kroger a couple of weeks ago and couldn't believe it.  these lemons are remarkably beautiful and juicy.  they would also be wonderful for any lemon tart.

to make the sorbet, i used this whole bag of lemons, which was six, sliced them and hand juiced them with a glass lemon juicer.  i strained them for seeds.  meanwhile, i heated 2 cups of water in a small saucepan and added 1 1/2 cups of sugar to melt.  i then added lemon zest from the rinds of the lemons and cooled the mixture in the refrigerator until chilled.

then, i added the chilled Meyer lemon juice to the mixture and placed in my Cuisinart ice cream maker and processed for 25 minutes.  this makes an amazing sorbet that would be wonderful for a hot summer evening.
