    Default Orange Sorbet

    To get fresh juice for this sorbet, you'll need about 10 medium-size oranges and 2 medium-size lemons.
    Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups water
    1 cup sugar
    Orange rind strips from 2 oranges
    2 2/3 cups fresh orange juice
    1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
    Orange rind curls (optional)

    Preparation

    Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan, and bring mixture to a boil. Add orange rind strips; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove and discard orange rind strips. Remove liquid from heat, and let cool completely. Stir in orange juice and lemon juice.Pour mixture into freezer container of a 4-quart hand-turned or electric freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Pack freezer with additional ice and rock salt; let mixture stand in freezer 1 hour before serving.
    Scoop sorbet into individual bowls. Garnish with orange rind curls, if desired. Serve immediately.

    Here's a favourite recipe of mine that I've been using for years.The lemon one is very refreshing after a "heavy" meal or on a hot summer's day.
    Orange Sorbet can be made by substituting 2 oranges for 2 of the lemons.

    Lemon Sorbet

    3 lemons
    8ozs granulated sugar
    1pt water

    Wash the lemons and, using a vegetable peeler, thinly pare the rinds from them. Place the rind in a pan with the sugar and water and bring to the boil. Boil for 10 minutes then remove from the heat and cool slightly. Squeeze the juice from the lemons and add to the pan. Leave to cool completely. Strain into a freezer-proof dish and place in freezer for about 1-1 hours until frozen about 2 cm in round the edge. Then, tip it into a chilled bowl and whisk till smooth. Pour back into freezer dish and freeze completely. Serve straight from the freezer in chilled dishes as it melts very quickly.

    Default Candied Peel

    Another well used recipe. Save the peel from your squeezed or eaten oranges for this one.

    Candied Peel

    Peel of 6 oranges or 8 lemons or 3 grapefruits
    8 ozs granulated sugar
    125 mls water

    Remove all the white pith from the peel then cut it into 6mm strips. Put into a pan and cover with cold water. Boil for 1 minute, drain, then repeat this twice more. Drain and return to the pan and add the sugar and water. Cook the peel in this until all the syrup has been absorbed. Remove the peel one bit at a time and roll in granulated sugar. Place on a rack and leave in a dry atmosphere (airing cupboard or spare room ~ just not a steamy kitchen) until the strips are completely dry. The longer the drying time the better the end product.

    emm im not sure how to reduce the recipe i use to normal consumption levels!
    I make two 12" pies at a time!
    I use two bags of lemons (about 10 )or 6 oranges and 2 lemons
    12 eggs
    a large shuggle of sugar
    cornflour
    a bit of butter
    pastry (make your own or buy it in)

    FOR THE BASE
    line two 12" flan dishes with pastry and blind bake for 10 mins remove baking paper and bake for another 20 mins at 180~190 C

    FILLING
    grate the rind off the oranges and lemons
    juice them
    bung in a pan
    add same amount of water as liquid already got
    bring to a simmer
    add sugar to taste
    take pan off the heat
    separate the eggs(Keep the whites for the meringue)
    using the yolks in another bowl add in 5-6 tablespoons cornflour
    add to the mix in the pan and beat like hell
    chuck in the pastry bases
    MERINGUE
    beat the egg whites till stiff
    add caster sugar till glossy
    spoon over filling
    bung back in oven at 150c for about 45 mins
