  • chaya, I'm actually more interested in the salad dressing. I normally juice the whole fruit with my juices, but with papayas I deseed because they're so bitter. How do you use them? I normally just throw them out, but I hear they're really good for you.

    • This is just the wonderful desert! thank you!


      • This is also healthy and interesting sorbet!;-)
        Pink Grapefruit-Tarragon Sorbet
        Generous 1 tablespoon freshly grated grapefruit zest
        3 3/4 cups pink or red grapefruit juice (not from concentrate)
        4-7 tablespoons clover honey (see Tips)
        3 tablespoons cranberry juice concentrate (optional)
        1 1/2 tablespoons vodka (optional)
        5 4- to 6-inch sprigs fresh tarragon, plus 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon, divided
        Place a quart-size (or larger) storage container for the sorbet in the freezer to prechill.
        Place grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, 4 tablespoons honey, cranberry juice concentrate (if using) and vodka (if using) in a large nonreactive saucepan (see Tips) and stir thoroughly. Bring just to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until the honey dissolves. Taste and add more honey, if desired. Stir in tarragon sprigs.
        Remove from the heat. Set aside to infuse the mixture, about 1 hour.
        Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a nonreactive medium bowl, pressing to extract as much liquid as possible. (No ice cream maker? See Granita Variation.) Stir in chopped tarragon. Refrigerate until very cold, at least 3 hours and up to 3 days. Process in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions, about 30 minutes. Transfer the sorbet to the chilled container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours. (The sorbet can be enjoyed right out of the ice cream maker, but the texture will be very soft and it will melt quickly.)
