Apple And Lime Sorbet

I like to eat an apple every morning before I have anything else to eat. But, I am a very fussy apple eater. They have to be crunchy and the cannot be floury and soft. Granny Smith remain my all time favourite but I like to buy the sweet little red apples as they are usually the most crunchy. However, this Apple And Lime Sorbet would make for a better choice every day in my opinion.

Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Apple And Lime Sorbet ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

I recently bought a bag of the little red apples, and bit into one and to my dismay, it was floury. More than my distaste for floury apples, it my not wanting to waste money. So, I decided to use my juicer and make apple juice. I thought that instead of drinking my fruit I would turn it into a sorbet, with an additional sour note of lime to make sure it puckered your mouth like a good sorbet should. This apple and lime sorbet was perfect for the hot summer weather we had earlier this year.

  1. I don’t like soft apples either. Apart from Granny Smith, there’s a famous local variety in Greece, known as “apples from Zagora” (the name of the village and wider area where they are cultivated). They are as red and crunchy as the apple given to Snow White!

  2. I dislike floury apples too. Luckily we live in a part of France, well known for its apples and pears, that offer a great selection of crisp, juicy apples. Great for making tarts as well.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
