Are you a fan of Italian ices? When I lived in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, they called them water ices. Joe has been buying a lot of the lemon Italian ices from the supermarket, and I wondered about making something similar. After two rounds of homemade ice cream recently, it sounded like a lighter and more refreshing option. And not in that bland diet way. These are wonderfully cold and lemony and won't weigh you down.
And Joe? He went nuts for the sorbet. It costs just a little more to make the homemade sorbet rather than buying the Italian ices -- luckily I plucked all the basil off my front porch -- but the sorbet was way better. I can't say I'll be replacing his Italian ice fix with homemade sorbet a few times a week, but it will make an appearance a few more times this summer.
