Sugar Mouse Sorbets
New member for 2007!

Ana Blagojević, 32 Myrtle St., Orono ME 04473, ph. 852-6044, blagojevica@gmail.com

Sugar Mouse Sorbet is traditional Ecuadorian sorbet made using a bronze "paila" (similar to a wok). The sorbet is hand churned in the paila over a bed of ice and straw. The ingredients used are: fruit, a small amount of egg white, sugar and water. Fruit will be organic and from Maine when possible. We will produce on a small scale and bring several gallons to market while the rest will be produced on site. We'll be at market in June, July and August on both Tuesdays and Saturdays.
