Lychee Lemon Sorbet ~ 荔枝柠檬沙冰


What can be more refreshing then a serving of homemade sorbet as an afternoon snack or a dessert? This is a very simple sorbet, basically, it's just frozen water or juice with some fruit and in my case, it's lychee and lemon with a sprinkling of freshly ground kaffir leaves.  The kaffir leaves are not only fragrant but the tiny dots of green just help to make the sorbet more attractive and pretty.


Recipe for Lychee Lemon Sorbet ~  荔枝柠檬沙

Ingredients                                       


  • 1 can Lychee with juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp Cointreau (optional)
Method
  1. Puree the Lychee with juice, kaffir leaves, salt and lemon juice in a blender till smooth.  Strain the mixture and blend again.
  2. Pour the mixture into a container, cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge, overnight.
  3. Proceed with the instructions as per your icecream maker but add in the tablespoonful of Cointreau just before adding in the mixture.
  4. Pour the sorbet into a container and freeze till required.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!
