Summer Eats: Strawberry Citrus Sorbet

STRAWBERRY CITRUS SORBET is adapted from the recipe for Citrus Sorbet in Francois Payard’s Simply Sensational Desserts. I make it every summer, all summer long. And it was my go-to dessert while I lost weight on Weight Watchers.

In the Garden: Planting Strawberries

Once I decided to plant fruit in both planters this year, I knew I wanted to try a different strawberry. I selected Ozark Beauties because they are supposed to grow in a more upright fashion and do well in containers like the plant you see on the right. They've also been bred against virus and afflictions like gray mold. And they too are ever-bearing, producing fruit all summer and into the fall. Don't they look plump and delicious?!
