POMEGRANATE SORBET

Sorbet, the name comes from turkey’s “Sherbet”, it generated in Middle East, and was seen as the mother of ice cream. Now sorbet belongs to a kind of Slush, it’s almost the same with ice cream when eating, but sorbet contains no fat.

According to the professional explains, Slush and ice is made of juice, water and sugar. American Slush generally contains milk or cream, sometimes egg white. Yet ice only contains juice, water, sugar, sometimes egg white, but no dairy products. Sometimes they are also called sorbet in French. Granite is a rough, crystalline ice, and contains no egg white.

As I understand it, sorbet means the more exquisite Granite, in order to make this feeling or exquisite come out, it needs frequent times’ stirring, and egg white is necessary for the ice cream’s smooth sense and bulk.

Pomegranate is so beautiful to appreciate, but have you ever been fascinated by its taste? I think pomegranate is like a string of red gems, so amazingly crystal and attracting! But when eating the pomegranate, the sour and sweet taste around your mouth would take your breath away! Sooooooo delicious! And so that today I add pomegranate into my self-made sorbet, beautiful with look and delicious with taste!
