Yummy Grape Sorbet

I visited Kimberly's house when they were here in the Philippines, and celebrated New Year with them over at Corinthian's. The food was great, and the company even better. I can proudly say that both our lola's (grandmothers) are great cooks, and truly a great tandem.

Anyway, I wish I took photos of the food we ate, but sadly I wasn't able to bring my own camera. I didn't know Beljo brought his; but when I knew, the food wasn't photogenic anymore. But that's alright.

Kimberly did a very yummy Tiramisu (for the first time) and her specialty, the Blueberry Cheesecake (both from the ICAN Cookbook - one great source of desserts if you will ask me).

Grape Sorbet :)

But something else caught my fancy. It's the homemade Grape Sorbet Auntie Nancy, a friend of my Aunt (Kimberly's mom), brought to the party. It looks very delish and tastes good, believe me. It's frozen pureed grapes with all other different ingredients. What I really liked about this is that it has bits and pieces of real grapes all over (yumm). Though it's quite sweeter than I expected (I'm not too much into sugar), I find it refreshing.

Here's some Concord Grape Sorbet recipe I found over at aarn!'s Flickr,

4-lbs of grapes (rinsed and stemmed) and 1c. of water were blended and put over low heat in a sauce pan. 3/4c. sugar and 1T. vodka were added to the warm pulp, and stirred until the sugar had dissolved. i think that the mixture was transferred to a mixing bowl, stirred over an ice bath for a little while until slightly chilled, then moved to the freezer. while in the freezer, the blended grape mixture was removed and stirred every 30-45 minutes for 2-3hrs, until at the desired consistency.

And here's a very nice article with photos, and some recipes of the grape sorbet. You have to check this out! Enjoy! :)
