I bought some red currants at my town’s Farmer’s market recently.
I was so pleased because they’re not easy to come by, and I cannot overstate how much I enjoy these tart little gems. I almost ate them all in one sitting!
I thought about putting the ones that I did not initially devour into a sweet goodie, but it’s so very hot…I did not want to bake.
So I decided to play up their sour side by incorporating them into a lime sorbet.
I took a chance and made this for dessert the night some new friends were coming over for dinner. I wasn’t sure this was a good plan…what if the recipe bombed?
Well, I am happy to report that the sorbet turned out to be delightful in every way. We loved the pretty pink hue, and thought the sweet/tart flavor was perfectly balanced. I’m hoping I can find more red currants this weekend so that I can make it again.
