Apples and Honey


My beautiful K1 and her husband(K1-in-law) are visiting us in New Jersey!  They have brought their wonderful smiles and incredible talent for making organic sorbet from Florida to the Garden State for just a few days.  They founded  REAL SORBET in Florida earlier this year, after moving there from Brooklyn.
REAL SORBET is a small batch sorbet company which uses local, organic fruit that is in season.   That being said, they have created a unique sorbet flavor for New Jersey: Apple and Honey Sorbet with local Jersey Apples and Honey!  I got to be part of this creative adventure from the apple picking to the first tasting....cheers!  Hope you enjoy the images and their new sorbet flavor.......
