Sugar High Friday – Citrus : Reminder
Yes, I know, it seems like the 25th is weeks away and there is still plenty of time to make something for the event….and you are right…but you know what they say: time flies. I was happy to see from your comments and the wonderful entries I have already received that you dig the theme this month, but I am difficult and I want more. Pleeeeeaaaase!!! Don’t forget to send the entry at sugarhighfridaycitrus AT gmail DOT com. For all the rules, see this post.
I have been baking a lot for home and work these past few days and there will be another SHF-Citrus entry tomorrow for a special someone and a celebration but in the meantime I thought I’d give you something from the archives to entice you and maybe inspire you for this round.
Citrons Givres : one of my favorite treats as a child and still has an adult, although now I like to add a little vodka to the lemon sorbet. Funny story is that in most French restaurant a lemon sorbet with a touch of vodka is called a Colonel…interesting isn’t it? Even my dad the Army guy can’t figure out why…and he knows everything (of course, he is a dad and that’s his job!)
Full post and recipe can be found here and I have already made a couple batches this week to cool us off with this crazy humid and hot week we have had. By the way, don’t you just love the fingerprints on the lemons?….Not!!

wow…let me tell you, it doesn’t get any citrusier than this! I can almost taste the tang! I really want to invest in an ice-cream maker. Next on my list!

This looks great. I love sorbet. Duh doesn’t everyone?!
Untill your last comment I thought the fingerprints in whatever you have coating them were intended to be there and looked really cute.
But there you go, I’m even a fan of your stuff-ups! lol.

Fingerprints!!! And here I was asking myself *How did she ever get that pattern on the lemons*!!!
Beautiful as always!

Those are my favorite treats every year at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. But they’re prepackaged, so I’m betting these are a hundred times better.

This looks so beautiful and refreshing! What a treat on a hot day.

I made a (very simple) citrus dessert for Mother’s Day, just for your event! Now I have to get my butt in gear and post it later this week! Yay!

I’ve always wanted to make and present a sorbet like this. It looks great. I hope I can get something done in time for SHF for you…

mmmmmmmmm sorbet, perfect for the lovely weather we’re having here at the moment. We only get these when we go to restaurants here but am such a lemon fiend think I’ll make them myself!

You’re hosting SHF!!! How did I miss that?! Okay … I have marked it down … must start thinking of ideas!!!

haha, now I see the fingerprints! I think they look like an artistic "leaf sort of design." 🙂
Nice idea for the serving dish!

OOh, I had this once at a renaissance fair, so delicious. Thanks for posting this recipe. I think I might make it this summer or maybe a little sooner :); it’s already sizzling hot here in Texas :/.
