This is not an advert for Dunhelm just more own personal view. No gifts in kind or coercements have been used this is just my subjective view. It is also not my photo.
As I said yesterday I paid a trip to Dunhelm and I spotted something that might be useful in my kitchen and maybe give OH a sugar free pudding in the process and myself of course. This little machine uses fresh fruit that has been frozen and then using the frozen fruit to go through like an extruding machine.It cost me £18 as it is on offer at the moment at Dunhelm.
For my first try I used a punnet of frozen mixed fruit - it turned out to be a little too tart but only ever such a fraction and so I will probably put a banana in next time or a little artificial sweetener just to take the tartness off. The one punnet cost me £2 from the Co-Op and made enough sorbet for the two of us. There are the occasional seeds but not as bad as when you eat the fruit fresh. However it is lovely and fresh tasting and you get the full blast of flavour and the colour is magnificent. However I am pleased with it. I think I might be more successful with banana with other half. In fact quite a few of the recipes in the little booklet with it mention banana. I also thought that if I was freezing the fruit to use myself from scratch then I could add a little sweetener then so it is all frozen in the mix as they say and might even use yogurt and cream in the mix as well. It is the frozen product that is used to produce the sorbet. It has given me food for thought for playing with it in any event. I also thought it might be a good way of getting more fruit into our diet. We eat a lot of veggies but not as much fruit - in summer different but not as much in the winter months. So I am looking forward to playing with this little gadget over the next few weeks. The sorbet produced is very different to a traditional sorbet but it is substantial and still makes a nice change
Catch you soon.
