my attempt at what they call "tango". orange sorbet with chocolate shavings. i used this as my base recipe, although i didn't let everything chill for as long as it says. i basically made the syrup, juiced my oranges, combined the rest of the ingredients and put them in the freezer to chill.
it actually turned out wonderful. i added the shaved dark chocolate at the end. it tastes so fresh. the only thing (as with all my handmade ice creams etc) is that it is best straight out of the ice cream mixer. the freezer tends to change the texture a bit because it freezes so solid. i don't know if making the freezer less cool would work but i should probably try that. i wonder how places get their stuff to keep such a smooth texture.
anyways, i am working on gathering stuff for the "grand" prizes for the blogiversary. i have most items, but need to pick up a couple more. thanks for being patient with me. lily is still a bit mopey but doing better, it is probably the drugs making her that way and i am starting to give them in smaller doses so hopefully she'll perk up.
i should also mention there will be a small marker sale tomorrow morning on the shop blog.
