Never without asked about my granita/sorbet recipe....so here it is:
1 3/4 cup sugar (when it was in liquid form, it was way to sweet, but now that it is semi-frozen, It is a tad bit sweet, so I will continue to play with the amount)
2 cans of apricots
2 handfuls of frozen blueberries
dash of vanilla extract
dash of almond extract
3 or 4 tablespoons of lemon juice (just barely enough to taste the tartness)
dash of salt
boil mixture. put in blender. cool. freeze.
What would I do differently?
probably run the blended mixture through a sieve. I prefer a smooth mixture and currently I am eating through blueberry skins etc....
Now I want an ice cream mixer....I was worried about my concoction turning hard as ice, so I was constantly scraping it. I think that's why I have granita and not sorbet.
Also, I want to try and add some tofu (heart healthy) and flax seed (omega healthy!) I will keep you posted. But this week I will be making a mango/pineapple flavor! Its my favorite tofu shake flavor!
This week I will be cooking and preparing for surgery! I hate-hate-hate caned soups, but I love soups, so....I will be best friends with my stove this week! I also nearly gave my husband a heart attack when I came outta the shower exclaiming my hair is getting cut! lol, it was a very funny conversation. He could handle my sternum being cracked open, but mentioning 12inches of my hair is getting whacked off, he nearly passed, and his hands started sweating and he accused me of being, "rash!"
That is my motto for now!
