Cantaloupe Melon Sorbet ~Secret Recipe challenge 17th November 2014

This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it.

This month I was assigned The Texan New Yorker that is written by Julie who describes herself as " A myopic, finicky eater with no food conscience, who transformed into a grown-up who loves cooking, food, adventurous eating, and cares deeply about where food comes from."  I looked through Julies blog and found some lovely recipes but finally I settled for the cantaloupe melon sorbet as I had an over ripe cantaloupe melon sitting in the fruit basket screaming at me to use it!!

The sorbet was refreshing and simply delicious, the only changes I made were that I added a forlorn ripe peach that was staring at me from the fruit basket and omitted the wine since I don't drink.
