Comments on: Strawberry Tarragon Sorbet Wed, 12 Mar 2014 12:49:29 +0000 hourly 1 By: larry Thu, 03 Sep 2009 22:29:27 +0000 I have been searching for a tarragon ice cream recipe without anything else. I love Basil and vowed this year I would make ice cream with it. I found a cinnamon Basil plant this year and just harvested enough the other day for ice cream…wow! It is soooo good, way better than I imagined!! Cinnamom Basil has the same chemical that real cinnamon has and, I think the best garnish would be to place the cinnamon basil flower on top as it has a pungent sweet cinnamon scent.
I have a batch of Lavender ice cream waiting to go in the maker right now…can’t wait to try it,

NoPo’s Hawiian is one & Salvador Molly’s pirate food in the Hawthorne is another. Acadia is a laidback fine dining restaurant, wonderful food, relaxing atmosphere, elegant menu, impeccable service…It is one of only a few places where I can’t find anything wrong, no matter how hard I look. :o) Rose’s Deli in the Pearl has the nicest waitstaff and good food. And for dessert go to MoonStruck Chocolates, also in the Pearl. There triple chocolate cheesecake is eye-rollingly delicious. You might need a cigarette afterwards! hehe

Sigh, good times!
Have fun & enjoy the city!

Sadder yet- our next door neighbor was a consistent winner in the MI state fair cherry pie contest, and was counting on our cherries to make some pies. We would have been able to enjoy the fruits of our labors. Pardon the pun. I couldn’t help it.

By: Danielle Fri, 06 Jul 2007 16:51:20 +0000 rob – So, does tarragon taste like anise to you? I feel like conducting a very informal survey.

mr. ed – That’s such a sad story! The deer tend to get my parents’ plums out at the other house, and if we wait too long, the worms get the sour cherries here. But I’m glad you liked the sorbet.

Kristen – Thank you!

By: Kristen Thu, 05 Jul 2007 14:59:35 +0000 Your photos of the sorbet are incredible! My mouth is watering for a taste of that.

By: mr.ed Thu, 05 Jul 2007 12:16:26 +0000 I made this yesterday for a picnic here, using $1/# berries (!) and a little less sugar. Wonderfully tart and intense.
When I was in college at Michigan State, we had a sour cherry tree in the backyard of a house we rented. On harvest day, we returned home to find birds had stripped the tree bare, and left the pits all over our cars. Unwaxed paint was murder to clean!

By: rob Sat, 30 Jun 2007 04:36:40 +0000 Danielle, that sorbet looks wonderful. I have to get off my duff and make some strawberry ice cream. That flavour just translates so well to frozen desserts. I love the use of tarragon — such a delicate flavour.

By: Danielle Wed, 27 Jun 2007 18:12:28 +0000 Ana – We checked out Pix. Pretty good, and I’m sorry I didn’t try their framboise lambic float. Guess I’ll have to make one myself.

Yvo – The next great technological innovation should be lickable screens!

SK – Honeydew sorbet sounds fantastic.

Kelli – I know! I would love to visit it. But alas, I didn’t even pack either of my utilikilts for this trip.

Lydia – Maybe a banana tarragon recipe is in order?

lisa – My pleasure! But really, you should go thank Dorie. ^^

Traca – I hit the main Powells and both Hawthorne Powellses twice each. My bookshelves runneth over. It was wonderful! I even picked up a few new cookbooks.

Dumela – Tarragon is an herb. I can’t really describe the flavor very well. some people say it tastes like anise, but it generally doesn’t to me, which is good, because I hate anise.

BC – Ack, I missed both of those places. Luckily, I’ll be back next year!

Lisa – Next time, definitely.

By: Lisa (Homesick Texan) Mon, 25 Jun 2007 18:34:22 +0000 Are you still in Portland? Pearl Bakery is supposed to be fab–I’m still sad I didn’t make it the one time I was there. And I believe it’s right by Powell’s which is a wonderful place to while away a day or so.

By: BC Mon, 25 Jun 2007 07:35:59 +0000 Pok Pok on SE Division is one of my favorites in Portland – not to be missed.

I seccond the motion about Apizza Scholls.

Eat up!
