We bought some of the most flavorful cantaloupe at the Farmer's Market the other weekend. I love buying fresh produce from the market to support our local farms, so it's always great when we come across new finds that we really enjoy. It's also a fun activity to do with Bradley since we're always looking for new outdoor places to take him to.I decided to use the cantaloupe to make a refreshing sorbet to satisfy our summer cravings, and it definitely hit the spot. The cantaloupe flavor was intense, and the little bit of simple syrup really made the fruitiness stand out. This was a wonderful guilt-free dessert!
- 1 ripe cantaloupe
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
Meanwhile, combine water and sugar in a small saucepan to make simple syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then lower heat. Simmer and continue to stir occasionally for 5 minutes, or until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to get to room temperature.
Once simple syrup is cooled, add half to the cantaloupe mixture in the food processor. Combine, then taste for sweetness. Add more simple syrup, as desired.
Add the cantaloupe mixture to a tupperware container and chill for 2 hours, or overnight.
Once cooled, add the mixture to your ice cream maker and make according to manufacturer's instructions.
