I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Refreshing Watermelon Mint Sorbet

If you've had a big meal then this is just the light and refreshing dessert you need to finish up.


3  1/2 cups cubed watermelon, fresh or frozen, puréed to make 2  1/2 cups 

2 tsps. finely chopped mint leaves (more if you like it minty)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (3 lemons, zested)
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup

Purée the watermelon in a food processor.  Set aside.

Before juicing the lemons, finely grate the peel. Any that you have leftover from this recipe you can put in a ziplok in the freezer for another use. My old little juicer was my Mom's but it still does the trick.

In a saucepan heat together mint, lemon juice and zest, sugar and corn syrup until sugar is dissolved.

Mix watermelon and liquid together, pour into a container and freeze a few hours or overnight.

After it has been in the freezer, break it up and place it back in the food processor and purée again until smooth.  
Refreeze in a container.
Now you are ready to scoop and serve!
