And now, for something new.
The air chills
And echoes in waves around.
And tracing patterns against skin
And through the room.
Time and space and moment.
Meeting eye to eye.
Conversations with the past, the future;
What has come and what will be.
Whispers through the room,
Crackles the air
Through the pores
And into the soul.
More than just the pretty,
The bought and paid for.
More than just the commissioned,
And the understood.
It’s the celebration,
From David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop
Makes 1 quart
1 two pound ripe cantaloupe
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, optional
Begin by chopping the cantaloupe. I do this by slicing the fruit in half and scooping out the seeds. Then, slice each half into 1 inch slices and removing the rind and all the green bits. Then chop the cantaloupe.
Add the chopped cantaloupe to a blender with 1/2 cup sugar, a pinch of salt, and 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice. Blend until smooth. Taste and add more lime juice if needed.
Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If using, add the chocolate chips in the last 5 minutes of mixing time.
