Sorbetto di Melagrana {Pomegranate Sorbet}

I’ve officially brought my ice cream maker out of it’s winter hibernation. It gets a pretty heavy workout in our house during the warm months and needs a little reprieve during the colder months ; ) The only decision what was to make in it first. A refreshing sorbet seemed like a great choice ; )

Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

One bite of this balsamic roasted strawberry and rhubarb sorbet and I think you’ll agree that your spring and summer just got a whole lot zesty and zippier. If you’ve never tried roasted strawberries I’m going to have to insist that you do (in the non pushiest way possible of course). If you have then you know how absolutely intoxicating the berries are when they’ve been hit with that low and slow heat.  I find that to be true of most things that go through the roasting process. In short, roasting rocks and you should and simply must try it.

Sorbetto di Melone {Cantaloupe Sorbet}

Dessert  in the summer time should be quick and refreshing. Nothing complicated {we don’t need another excuse to heat up our kitchen do we ; ) }. With so many fresh fruits in season the possibilities for ideas are endless. For me, Sorbets are my go to summer time dessert. It’s obvious how much I adore them  {you’ve seen our GRAPE, POMEGRANATE, CHERRY, and WATERMELON} Sorbets use just a handful of ingredients and take minutes to prepare. You could even have the machine running while you’re eating dinner and it will be ready by the time you are! Easy peasy.

I love summer time. I love the long days, throwing our normally way over scheduled schedule out the window, and kicking back with GELATO! Yes, I could make it everyday {and sometimes we do LOL} My Cuisinart maker is getting quite a workout this summer! She’s one kitchen gadget that has been worth every penny!  I might as well just leave her out on the counter she gets used so often ; )
