clementine sorbet. because blood oranges are too expensive.

ciao bella blood orange sorbet. a very good thing. sometimes the perfect thing. the just what you need thing. the hmmm i should try making that thing.
the surprising, mysteriously blood colored pulp that seems to seep through the shiny, protective skin and into the fruit is beautiful. 
and interesting. 
and bizarre. 
and really just very expensive. too expensive for sorbet.
 so i decided to forgo making blood orange sorbet. instead i chose a lovely and vastly more economical citrus. the clementine. the clementine is, on its own, a perfect snack--easy to peel and sweet and bright and exciting to eat. and it turns out that it makes for some pretty incredible sorbet, too.

ingredients for the sorbet:
3 cups clementine juice
1 cup sugar
1 cups water
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lemon
 to make the sorbet:
1. cut the clementines in half and juice them until you have three cups. hopefully you have a juicer. if you don't, this will be an awfully tedious process. 
2. combine the clementine juice with the lemon juice and zest.
3. heat the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium high heat and stir it as it boils. when the sugar dissolves remove it from the heat. 
4. combine all the ingredients and pour them into an ice cream maker for as long as your ice cream maker takes to make sorbet. mine took 20 minutes. freeze the sorbet for at least 2 hours before serving.
if you want to be unnecessarily fancy you can serve the sorbet in an actual clementine! cut the top off a clementine and scoop out the fruit (this is actually surprisingly easy in clementines). fill with sorbet and freeze until serving. that's it! who doesn't want to eat clementine sorbet out of an actual clementine??!

  2. Expectations for the tax reform remain enormous, and so is the risk of failure, he said. Tax reforms have always and everywhere been a truly Herculean task, and even well attuned governments have failed to deliver.

People would rather come into the store and see it themselves, Mr. Hanes said, explaining why the Essential's customers trust their shop over online sellers who may have lower prices, out of fear of unwittingly buying knock offs..

    For many Indians, this knock was an epoch defining moment. Tendulkar told an entire country that nothing is impossible. It was the last match of the round robin phase of a tri nation tournament in Sharjah and India had two targets to chase to score 284 to win the match, and to score at least 254, to enter the final on the back of a better net run rate than the Kiwis. {tag: Yeezy 700 White}
