DaVinci Storyteller Experience: Sorbetto di Melone

A refreshing, between-course palate cleanser

By choosing to click and read this blog post, you confirm you are of legal drinking age in the country where this site is accessed.

Just in time for those multi-course holiday meals!

2 cantaloupes (peeled and chopped into 1 inch squares)
1 cup of sugar
½ cup of DaVinci Pinot Grigio
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
a pinch of sea salt
Cracked black pepper (or, red peppercorns)

A cinch to make, and It'll impress your guests!

Combine wine and sugar in a small saucepan, stir and bring to a slow boil.  Remove from heat and cool (about a half hour).
In a food processor, blend the cantaloupe, and a pinch of sea salt, until very smooth. Add the sugar/wine syrup and blend again. Pour mixture into an ice cream machine, and freeze the sorbetto according to manufacturer’s directions. (Mine took about 25-30 minutes).  Scoop out churned sorbetto into a sealable container and freeze until ready to serve. Before serving, sprinkle with a little freshly cracked black pepper.

  1. Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole's Chatter is collecting links to posts about ice cream and sorbets – or anything similar like gelato. I do hope you link this in. This is the link . Please do check out some of the other links – there are a lot of good ones already. Have a great week.
