#EdenCooks - Summer Sorbets - Mon 23 July, 8pm EST

Antipova Antipova
Welcome to the JulyMeeting of Eden Cooks! Eden Cooks is a cooking club for any interested members of the Eden community. We will meet on the forum to discuss everything from tips and pointers for less well-equipped kitchens, explanations of cooking terms, and important techniques. There will be a featured recipe each meeting, with pictures taken as I prepare it for you. I will cover some ingredient substitutions to make each recipe more friendly to people with dietary restrictions.


I want to thank you all for being flexible with the timing of the Eden Cooks meeting (family reunion season plays with everyone's schedule!) this month---and I hope these delicious and easy-to-make sorbets will be worth the wait! We're going to focus on cool and refreshing frozen fruit delicacies---and because the recipe is so simple and easy-to-customize, we're also going to have a little "recipe building" activity so everyone can have just the exact sorbet their heart and tastebuds desire.

In this meeting I'll show how to make Rhubarb sorbet, Lemonade + Iced Tea sorbet, Lemon Ginger sorbet, and Lavender sorbet---whether you have a fancy ice cream maker, or whether you'll just be freezing your fruit syrups in your freezer. (That's what I did!) The recipes can also be scaled up or down for personal-sized treats, or to refresh your whole family.



During the meeting, five $10 gift cards to EF will be awarded to the winners of a trivia contest from information that I will provide during the meeting, and to those who create exciting recipes in our recipe-brainstorm session.

The meeting will take place on the EdenFantasys forum in this very thread at 8 pm EST on Monday, July 23rd. I'm want you all to feel as refreshed as I do, so I can't wait to see you there! Rhubarb sorbet---because you can't buy rhubarb popsicles.

They were delicious. Next time I go to the store I will definitely pick up some more wrappers since so quick and easy to do.

Ooh, that sounds like a lot of fun! So when I ask
What foods are you looking forward to preparing for your families, or what of your relatives' specialties are you looking forward to eating?
, I'm guessing the answer will be fish?

Do you fry it or steam it?
