Thank Goodness It's Not Lent!

I generally don't care for watermelon. It's a long story involving too many seeds and such. So, when one of my parishioners gave me a watermelon straight from the garden, I was touched at the gesture but dismayed at its presence in my refrigerator. That, however, has changed.

I dug out my favorite cook book and made WATERMELON SORBET. Oh, party people, you only wished you lived in Alva. This delightful mixture froze up beautifully in my ice cream maker. It is smooth and creamy and is pungently watermelon-y. Now, I am searching out more delicious fruit sorbets to make and store. Yet another lovely way to hold over fruit that fades so quickly.

Anybody want the recipe?
