Was it actually cooler in Jamaica than Boston at the end of last week? An e-mail from Jason Henzell said it was. My thermometer showed it to be 101.6 degrees F in Beantown on Friday, versus 82 degrees F at his place, Jake's Resort, in Treasure Beach. There must be something about the Caribbean Sea that keeps things cool down there on the south coast.

Jason offered this homemade watermelon sorbet recipe as a pity present to help us chill. It's delicious, although I must say, Jason, we're a little annoyed with you for rubbing it in!

Jakes Homemade Watermelon Sorbet
1. Place following ingredients into a mixing bowl:
- 4 cups of seeded watermelon (We recommend buying organic. Jakes uses only local produce, and we want this to taste as close to the real deal as possible!)
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 lemon (peeled)
- 4 cups of ice

2. Blend at low and increase to high for 30 seconds until stiff peaks form. Serve immediately.
