Sorbet without an icecream maker

Updated on November 5, 2015

No ice cream maker for this dessert

Beautiful Orange Sorbet, Very quick and easy.

No ice cream maker needed in this video.

Another great Sorbet recipe with an ice cream maker. Nero used slaves after all.

This is an easy Sorbet recipe which can be made in a very short time.

Perfect for in between courses or as a dessert after the main course. The name Sorbet comes from the Latin verb “sorbere” meaning to eat and drink at the same time.

Sorbet’s have been around since Rome. It is said that Emperor Nero used slaves to bring hard packed snow, wraped in animal skins from the alpine regions in Northern Italy above present day Bergamo. He would then cover the ice in syrup and fruit juice for consumption at the imperial table. It is also believed that in the 17th century when Catherine de Medici married into the French Royal Family part of her dowry was the recipe to glacees.

I have included some u-tube videos on making sorbet but all of them depend on modern home ice cream makers. The recipe I have written for you only requires the use of a normal home refrigerator/freezer a big advantage if you do not have the latest fancy kitchen gadgets, or as my great grandmother puts it. “Everything that opens and shuts.”

I have had a lot of positive feedback about my recipes containing both the US customary units and their metric equivalents. Our Canadian cousins seem to appreciate it. So with this in mind I will try a new format listing the ingredients together in stead of in two parts. The metric equivalent in parenthesis.

So there is nothing stopping you! Make a Sorbet..

Orange sorbet:

Cooking time. 10 minutes

Preparation time.- 15 minutes Main cooking utensils: saucepan, strainer, freezing tray Serves. 4-6

Ingredients

5-6 large oranges

1 lemon

½ pint water (275 ml. water)

2 egg whites

3-4 oz. sugar(75-100 g. sugar)

2 egg whites

Lemon sorbet

Ingredients

4 large lemons

1/2 pint water (275 ml. water)

4-5 oz. sugar (100-125 g. sugar)

2 egg whites

Method

1. Squeeze out the juice from the fruit.

2. Remove any pith from the skins and put the skins with the water into a pan and simmer steadily.

3.Strain carefully to give a clear liquid, add the sugar while hot, stir to dissolve, then add the syrup to the fruit juice.

4. Taste and, if necessary, add more sugar to give a sweeter flavour - remember freezing reduces sweetness slightly, never over-sweeten.

5. Put into the freezing tray, freeze for approximately 30 minutes in the freezing compartment.

6. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, add the partially frozen mixture and fold together. 7. Return to the freezer and leave until firm – 25-40 minutes


My Grandma Peg loves this music.

These u tube videos of the Hermans Hermits are a tribute to my Gran who helped raise me. When ever we would bake or cook something in the kitchen we would listen to music.

Other media was “out” on the South side of our apartment where everything happened, no TV, no computers. It was all good, because Gran would listen to everything. Aaliyah, Usher, Nelly, Train, Lighthouse you name it. She had the dope collection of vintage LP’s that we used to play all the time.

For those who have a lot less time than I do I recommend this Cuisinart, especially for Gelato!

      MLM works and is the vehicle rielopssbne for helping many people on the road to find financial independence, typically within 2-5 years.There is, however, much confusion and misunderstanding concerning this business model. A pyramid scheme has no real product so commissions are based on bringing new people into the scheme who in turn also bring new people into the scheme. It's usually the people at the top that get the most while those at the bottom get very little. Eventually all pyramid schemes collapse because there is no real product being sold.MLM, on the other hand, usually has a very real product that is sold either by retail or through members personal purchases (usually both). Members are encouraged to build a network of distributors to market the product.In MLM you can earn more than those at the top if you apply some effort.In a pyramid scheme you can never earn more than those above you, so when investigating an MLM company see if you can find out if there are people earning more than their sponsors, (this is the crucial test to weed out pyramid schemes)
