The Ardent Epicure

An Ode to the Pleasures of Food

Armenian Cucumber, Apple 
and White Tea Sorbet

Do you guys remember our Armenian Cucumber cocktail?
Well today I have another treat for you, but this time in the form
of a cold, cold do need to cool off right :)

We are going to be using our juicer here again, but if you do not have
one, just use prepared juice.

And for a nice refreshing balance of flavors, we are adding a slightly
tart apple and some white tea. And let me just say, if you are in
a hurry...this combo makes a very refreshing cold drink as well :)

What you will need:
3 cups prepared tea, chilled
1 large Armenian Cucumber
1 large apple
2 cups evaporated cane juice, or raw sugar
A pinch of salt
Ice cream maker

Let's get juicing:

Begin by slicing your cucumber and apple into sizes appropriate for your juicer.
Once you have your juice place in fridge to chill completely. Note: you will need 
about 2 cups of juice, if you did not yield enough juice add 
more chilled tea to total 5 cups. 

Now prepare a simple syrup by placing tea, juice and sugar into a
medium sized saucepan. Over medium heat, simmer this mixture until the sugar
has completely melted. Allow this mixture to rest for 20 minutes
then chill in refrigerator 4-6 hours or overnight.

Once mixture has completely chilled, stain through a fine mesh sieve to
 remove all solids. Your mixture is now ready for your ice cream machine.

Follow your machines manufacturer instructions for sorbet.
The mixture will typically reach desired consistency in about 20 min.

But before you go...
