It’s been such an obscenely hot summer I’ve been looking for lots of ways to cool off. I posted Strawberry Sorbet and my Lemon (or Lemon Thyme) Buttermilk Popsicles, and I’m at it again – Cracked Black Pepper Honeydew Sorbet. Yeah, this is another of weird flavor combination but it really works – the flecks of pepper dance off your tongue and give interest to the sweet, fruity honeydew flavor.
Sorbet is one of the treats of summer – in Minnesota, we can’t find fresh berries that taste of anything at any other time of the year and the cost is prohibitive. Starved as we are for their sweet, floral flavor in our cold, winter wasteland, we’d probably pay anything for fresh berries – if only they were good.
