I won't complain about the snow. I won't complain about the snow.
I won't complain about the snow......Ok, I stopped. Actually, I have nothing to complain about. There was no school, I didn't have to drive anywhere, I didn't have to shovel, and there is egg nog from Christmas still in my refrigerator. Perfect for the day after a snowy night.
So I put the lemons in my fruit bowl and waited for them to finish ripening. Fine by me, I had no idea of what to do with them.
Last year, I made a Meyer Lemon and Salted Caramel ice cream which was delicious. Making the same thing twice can be boring though, and I really needed to find a way to use these guys before they got too ripe and went the way of warmer days.
Some searching led me to a recipe for Lemon Sorbet from Cook's Illustrated-- my favorite source for recipes. But, me being me, I couldn't just leave the recipe the way it was, I had to make adjustments to allow for incorporating the three oranges on my counter that I neglected to use on New Year's Eve with our chocolate fondue.
|Two Zests and a Spice|
So.. two zests and some cinnamon later, I made a lemon, little bit o' orange and cinnamon sorbet. It tastes delicious, was really easy and captures that citrusy cinnamon flavor of winter.
I don't know what to call it!!!Winter Citrus Chicken recipe so Winter Citrus Sorbet is out.
