Grape Sorbet ~ FIC Purple

Food in Purple and black was a tough choice for me but nevertheless wanting to participate I kept racking my brains. Black foods that I could think of was either Banana Halwa (Don't get the variety of the banana that is required for this recipe) then there were an array of sweets that could have been made but with fever etc going around I decided to just drop my plans. Thats when I saw a Gelato recipe in her blog I felt that even I could try making it. Thanks dear. From her blog I hopped on to David's Blog. After taking a tour of the blog I zeroed on Grape Sorbet. The grapes that I used were not very deep in colour and hence the end result is a very light shade of purple. Hope this qualifies!!
David's site is one of the must to see if you plan to make ice cream's. Every pic makes you drool and have some of it. He also has good tips regarding how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker plus he also makes it a point to specify substitutions if any! I am going to keep visiting him for more recipes. Thanks David!
Coming to this, I have followed his recipe. To view it click here. Only substituions that I made was to use mild flavoured honey instead of Light corn syrup and omitted out the Rose Wine and used a hand held electric mixer. Though the temperature was quite cold for a chilled dessert, we enjoyed it. Please hop on to his blog to see really drool worthy pics. 
Thank you Harini for this challenging event. Wating for the next colour!

Anu,
Thanks, credit goes to David

Shama,
It was lovely.

Vinayakanna,
Kaala khatta is made from Jambul. And fr kaala khatta salt, pepper powder etc are used. Which I have not used. I used grapes for this.

The pale shade of your sorbet is attractive.
For me anytime is frozen dessert time, except when I'm unwell.:)
Happy to have sent you in the direction of grapes. David Lebovitz's site is an excellent one.
