This sorbet also doesn't require an ice cream machine. Truly it couldn't be simpler: use just sugar, water, and lemon juice with the fruit. The frosty result is a true taste of summer.

We make crumbles, cobblers, and crisps on repeat from May until September. In our latest version, the fruit is cooked to a jammy consistency and topped with a not-too-sweet, breakfast-style cream biscuit. Finished with whipped cream, this simple baked dessert may replace all others -- at least while strawberries are in season.

Leftover homemade pound cake works well with this recipe. It's also a super easy one to throw together when you are entertaining.

Tapioca is made from the root of the cassava plant; it's used as a thickening agent in puddings, soups, and fruit-pie fillings. Look for it in the pudding section at your supermarket.
