Lemon-Buttermilk Sherbet


Auntie Kare’s Lemon-Buttermilk Sherbet
*******
Amazingly simple and incredibly good. When Auntie Karey was raising her children in Montreal, she gleaned this amazing recipe from the huge collection of Bon Appetit magazines her friend Terri Tustain had given her. The first time we all tasted it was when she, Rochelle and Dwight made it and brought it
to an Easter Sunday dinner with a cake decorated like a lamb. Yum.

4 C buttermilk, or plain kefir (one quart container)
2 C sugar, scant
½ C lemon juice, fresh squeezed (before juicing, remove zest first with microplane or small grater)
2 TBL lemon zest (organic when using zest)

1.     Pre-freeze the bowl of your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
2.     In a large mixing bowl stir all ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
3.     Refrigerate until chilled.  We’ve made it without chilling and it still turns out. It just takes longer.
4.     Whisk the mix again and churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.  This usually takes 20-30 minutes. While sherbet is freezing, chill a glass storage container in the freezer. 
5.     Once sherbet is done, transfer to chilled container and freeze until ready to serve.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Sprouts Foo Young

Sprouts Foo Young ******* For each pancake:   2 eggs Grapeseed oil or ghee 1 C sprouts (alfalfa, sunflower, mung bean) 1 small clove garlic, minced ¼ C chopped green onion tops 1 tsp freshly grated ginger (or pinch of ground ginger) ½ to 1 tsp Braggs amino sauce (like soy sauce) Optional:  add shrimp or fresh crab meat to step #1 Add a bit of oil in a small skillet.  Over medium heat sautee garlic, ginger and green onion tops.  Do not brown the garlic—that will make it bitter. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.  Whisk in Braggs. When garlic is fragrant, add a bit more oil, then add sprouts, give them a stir or two (to mix with garlic, etc.), and pour egg over all.  Cook like an omelette, or flip like a pancake to brown on both sides.  

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .
