“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.”
I clipped this recipe out of the newspaper several years ago and then modified it to suit my family’s taste. It serves as a casual dessert or it makes a lovely presentation in pretty glass dessert dishes with the raspberry sauce drizzled over it.
Simple, super-quick and pretty as a picture, this dainty, refreshing treat from our Test Kitchen will melt any resistance to dessert! Best of all, it couldn’t be easier to make. Garnish with fresh blackberries, blueberries and raspberries—or frozen. Vary the sorbet according to your preference. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Strawberries, watermelon and three other items are all you need for this freezer treat that's virtually free of fat. A friend gave me the recipe, promising it was the ultimate in refreshing, summer desserts. I couldn't agree more. —Jill Swavely, Green Lane, Pennsylvania
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
