Melon Sorbet

Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 4 minutes; other: 50 minutes

This refreshing sorbet can be served as a light dessert or as a palate cleanser between the starter and main course. Be sure to use ripe, sweet cantaloupe. Purchase the cantaloupe several days in advance, and leave it on your counter to ripen. You'll know it's ripe when you can smell it as you walk into your kitchen. Place the cantaloupe in the refrigerator the day before you plan to make the sorbet so it will be thoroughly chilled.

Yield: 9 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
