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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
