For the first time in four or five years, we’ve had an amazing melon crop at the farm. I love cantaloupe, but in a cruel joke of nature, they give me heartburn. What to do with all of these beautiful melons coming out of the garden? Cantaloupe frozen dessert, of course!

We started our experimentation with a cantaloupe sorbet–simple, refreshing, and dairy-free for our vegan friends (also gluten-free). Nothing but ripe fruit, a simple syrup, fresh lemon juice and a pinch of salt to keep it scoopable.

It. Is. Amazing.

Which, of course, makes the whole heartburn thing even more annoying. I’m hoping the milk and cream in the next recipe–cantaloupe ice cream–will mitigate whatever is causing me issues.

Stay tuned for the next experiment!
