Easy Melon Sorbet

1) To freeze melon chunks: Cut cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Cut into wedges and remove peels. Then cut wedges into chunks and place on cookie tray in freezer.

2) To make sorbet: Remove melon chunks from freezer and place in food processor. Let set for about a half hour to thaw slightly. (I usually put them in before dinner and then make the sorbet just after dinner.) Add a splash of lemon juice and about ¼ cup honey or agave syrup. Add about 1/4 c. hot water and blend until smooth. Add more water if necessary to desired consistency, and add more sweetener to taste. Serve immediately. 

Melon Smoothie

½ medium cantaloupe

1-2 c. plain yogurt or milk

honey or maple syrup to taste

cinnamon, if desired

 

Cut melon in half. Scoop out seeds. Cut melon into 2 inch chunks, discarding rind. Freeze chunks on a cookie sheet.

Blend frozen melon chunks with 1 c. yogurt or milk. Add additional yogurt or milk and blend to achieve desired thickness. Add honey, maple syrup or agave syrup to sweeten to taste. Pour into glasses and dust top with cinnamon if desired. Serve immediately.

*Variation: Use cream instead of yogurt and milk and pour mixture into popsicle molds for delicious melon creamsicles. Can add a peach or some raspberries to mixture as well.

*Variation: Add 1/2 - 1 cup orange juice to mixture for melon Orange Julius!  Our family LOVES this!

The Best Corn Fritters

*adapted from The Joy of Cooking

- I have tried many recipes for corn fritters or corn cakes, and I think this is the best. These are an amazing dish that I love to make at least once during fresh sweet corn season. They are wonderful!

Cut and scrape kernels from:

5 ears sweet corn (about 2 1/2 cups)

Place corn and pulp in a large bowl and stir in:

2 large egg yolks

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 tbsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

Beat until still but not dry:

2 large egg whites

Fold egg whites into corn mixture. Heat in a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over med. high heat until hot:

2 tbsp. butter or coconut oil

Drop in the batter, a heaping tablespoon full at a time. Reduce heat to medium and cook until lightly browned on botton, 2-3 minutes. Turn once. Do not pat down. Cook 2nd side until lightly browned. Serve immediately!
