Strawberry Sorbet with Honey

Strawberry Sorbet

One day all birds gathered in the woods and decided to create a school for their small ones to learn how to read and write. They found a teacher and a place and the school opened for all the little birds of the forest. After a few days some small ones went to school without having done their homework. The teacher decided to keep them at school so they could write their homework and be taught a lesson. Among those who stayed was owl’s child.

After the end of school and while many of the children have returned home, the owl realized that her child was not one of them. She decided to go to school to find out what had happened and give her baby something to eat. On her way there, she met with partridge. Her child stayed at school also and she had the same idea with the owl.

Strawberry Sorbet

Once they met the partridge said to the owl: “Please Mrs. Owl would it be possible to give my child his snack, as I am too busy and I don’t have the time to take it myself?”

The owl replied: “Of course I can do that Mrs. Partridge, but I don’t know which one is your child.”

“Oh, don’t worry about that! You will be able to recognize it very easily as it is the most beautiful child in school.” The partridge said.

The owl took the partridge’s snack and went to school. She asked the teacher if she could give the food to the children and the teacher allowed her to do so.

Strawberry Sorbet

The owl went in the classroom, looked carefully at all the children, but she couldn’t find partridge’s child. So, she returned back to the forest found the partridge and gave her back the snack and said: “I am so sorry Mrs. Partridge, I looked carefully each and every child in the classroom but I couldn’t find your child, because the most beautiful child in there was my child.”

This little story is one of the most famous Greek fairytales about mother’s love and how she perceives her child. It is so famous that when we hear a mother talking with laudatory remarks about her child we call her owl. Unquestionably, mother’s love for her children is sacred and the bond among them is so strong that can’t be broken by anyone.

Mother’s Day is coming and it is a great chance to show our love to the person who brought us to life and raised us to become the adults we are. Since the weather is getting warmer and warmer I thought that this strawberry sorbet is just the perfect little thing to show her our affection and love. Let’s make her day as sweet as our feelings for her!

  7. Αν θέλετε μπορείτε να περάσετε τον πολτό μέσα από ένα κόσκινο για να φύγουν τα μικρά σποράκια.
  8. Εγώ δεν θέλω να χάσω ούτε ένα κουταλάκι από τις φράουλες και έτσι το άφησα όπως είναι.

    What a beautiful story, Katerina! Your sorbet is however even more beautiful! I looooove sorbets (the only thing I buy at our Italian ice-cream shop) and this is the reason why I bought an ice-cream maker: to make sorbets. Sadly, the weather is so awful here, I feel like having soups rather than cold desserts 😉 I hope it will change soon because I cannot wait to make your recipe!

  87. Kate says:

    Cute story. It’s the first time I’ve heard it. I’m guilty of often finding other children more beautiful than my own. But what they may lack in looks they more than make up in personality.

  89. Sarah says:

    What a beautiful and refreshing dessert. I love the addition of honey to the recipe instead of just using refined sugar. Definitely perfect for the beautiful May weather we’ve been having in San Diego!
