I have been working on a monster post all week long, so there hasn’t been much blog posting going on. I’m sorry about that, but I think it will be worth it when I finally get this 4,000-word novella finished. It’s about picture books, in case you’re impatient like me. In the meantime, I found a recipe for Root Beer Sherbet a couple weeks ago at Just Jen Recipes. I was intrigued as soon as I saw the recipe. When I explained it to Joe, he jumped up and ran to Walmart to get a bottle of root beer. The sherbet was delicious, just the right combination of root beer and milk. We’ve since made sherbet with orange pop, too, and we have plans for Mountain Dew sherbet and Dr. Pepper sherbet. We don’t drink pop at home, so we’ve been buying it special just for the sherbet. When it’s hot outside, sherbet is a lovely way to end our dinner. It’s not terribly healthy, but if you just have a little bit, it’s not terribly unhealthy, either.
Just what is sherbet?
According to Wikipedia, sherbet is an often fruity frozen milk product with a fat content of 1-2% (as opposed to sorbet which has no milk at all and ice cream which has a fat content of 10% or more).
