For Thursday, August 11th, 2011
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons kirsch
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 cup cherries, chopped
1 quart raspberry sherbet
2 cups raspberries
Whip the cream until it begins to hold its shape. Gradually beat in sugar and Kirsch until stiff. Do not over beat, or else the stiffness is lost, and mixture starts to splatter and chunk up. Fold in nuts and cherries.
Line a 6 cup mold with 1/2 the mixture leaving a hole in center. Fill in the hole with sherbet and cover with remaining mixture. Decorate top with 1 cup fresh raspberries. Freeze 8 to 10 hours. When ready to serve, take out of mold carfully, by placing upside-down, then decorate the rest of the bombe with the remainder of raspberries. Enjoy!
To see the Perseids, look for the constellation Perseus in the northeast. It sits near Cassiopeia, which looks like a large letter W.
Unfortunately, this year’s peak activity coincides with the full Moon, which makes the sky too bright for ideal viewing
