Spiced and sweet

Balance in all things, right?

Which is why when I made the clementine and honey sorbet, I added ginger and cloves and cardamom and a bay leaf.

It really tastes spiced, but not spicy. Warmth from the cloves, pungency from the ginger and cardamom, and earthiness in the bay leaf from my front yard.

How do you find balance in all things? Where do you find your sweetness and spices?

a little bit of this, a little bit of that, balance in your daily life, as in cooking.. some works, some doesn't, take it all in, hope for the best, and slide on the ice....
