Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Simple Blackberry Sorbet

Most frozen dessert recipes require tons of ingredients or a pricey ice cream maker. Not this one! With only three ingredients and a freezer you can make this easy sorbet. It is even surprisingly low in fat. Very cool and refreshing, it is the perfect finale to any summer picnic, barbecue, or cookout.

4 cups blackberries
2 cups sugar
2 cups buttermilk

Lightly mash the blueberries in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar and let the berry mixture macerate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Pour the berry mixture into a food processor and process until smooth. Pour the berry mixture through a fine meshed sieve to remove the seeds. Discard the seeds and anything else that will not go through the sieve. Place the berry mixture in a 9 X13 metal pan. Mix in the buttermilk until smooth. Cover tightly and freeze for 8-10 hours. Using a large spoon, break the mixture into large chunks and place into a medium bowl. Beat the mixture until smooth, letting sit for a few minutes at room temperature if needed. Cover and freeze for at least three hours before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
