Cantaloupe Cilantro Sorbet

It's definitely summer. Which means all bets are off and it's time to dust off that ice cream maker. In fact just keep it on your counter because you are going to use it alot.

Well I am going to use it a lot at least...

My favorite types are sorbets are the ones you can make with the fruit you have on hand. You can come up with the most creative ideas that way. So its good luck that I had a very ripe cantaloupe that was waiting for the perfect recipe. And right next to it was a large bunch of cilantro I had gotten for salsa and other great summer recipes.

It was a match that was a risk...

But it went so well together. The sweet melon went well with the fresh cilantro flavor. It's something that will cool you off this summer and have you experimenting with your ice cream maker.

Cantaloupe-Cilantro Sorbet
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 ripe Cantaloupe
1/4 cup Cilantro leaves

Combine the sugar and water in a sauce pan until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. Meanwhile cut up the Cantaloupe and put in a blender. Then add the Cilantro leaves and blend until smooth. Combine the puree and the sugar syrup together and put in the refrigerator until chilled. Freeze in your ice cream maker per the instructions...

Have a fun summer and keep cool!
