After scooping out the watermelon for this pretty pink sorbet, I freeze the rind shell to use as a serving bowl for the scoops. We also put out bowls of chocolate chips and jimmies so our guests can sprinkle on their own "seeds".—Heide Grable, Raleigh, North Carolina
"This fruity dessert is refreshingly cool and light with a hint of richness," Nina Rohlfs confirms from Unadilla, Nebraska. "It’s just right for a company meal or a pleasant afternoon treat. I like to serve it in sherbet glasses with mint sprigs for an elegant look."
Add a refreshing finish to any meal with this smooth icy dessert from Bonnie Kinzler of New York, New York. The subtle hint of fresh rosemary lends a delightfully different flavor to the citrusy sorbet.
“My mother-in-law has a sour cherry tree in her yard that yields many quarts of cherries each June, and this is a great way to use some up,” notes Carol Gaus of Itasca, Illinois. “This frosty sweet-sour sorbet is a refreshing treat on a hot summer day.”
From Georgetown, Texas, field editor Susan Garoutte writes, "On hot summer days, nothing seems to satisfy like the tartness of lemons. This light, refreshing sorbet is one of my favorite ways to use that puckery fruit."
