When I was a child my father owned a perfume and cosmetics store in the Arcade Building in Downtown Toronto. I used to have to hand out pamphlets for his store and he would pay me by buying me a Orange Sherbet cone from The Laura Secord shop in the front of the building.
Obviously, I could be bought for cheap!
I can still see the white interior of that store, the rows of chocolates in glass cases and the distinct smell of fresh ice cream cones (there was only the regular kind) and the taste of that cold Orange treat.
This recipe is the exact colour of those cones although the flavour is like a ripe cold melon.
In case you were wondering, Sorbets are typically made without milk or cream and Sherbets sometimes have milk or buttermilk in them.
You will need:
- 1 ripe cantaloupe melon
- 1/4 -1/2 cup sugar (depending on how sweet the melon is)
- 1/2 lime squeezed
- 1 tsp rum (optional)
