DH expressed an interest in sherbet, his dad used to make it for him when he was a kid, but the years passed and so did the recipe. After a quick search and a bit of tweaking we decided on this mix for the perfect Homemade Sherbet Recipe. And yes, im eating it now, i wish they would invent a better way of eating it so i dont have to lick my finger… 😉January 1, 2012 at 11:16 pm #517758coloursMember
use a stick of licorice, lick and dip, like with those sherbet fountains.January 2, 2012 at 12:00 am #517759mistyhollowsMember
That sounds soooo yum Cystal. My kids are going to love this, think I might too :laugh:January 2, 2012 at 9:52 am #517760
Oh, i have some red licorice i got for christmas. I could use a paddle pop stick, but i dont like licking the wood, it makes my mouth go… funny… ok, so i have a phobia of putting sticks in my mouth… Im very weird, i have some very odd phobias… I’m afraid of steel wool 🙁 and wooden things in my mouth… I cant use tooth picks and i almost lost my job once because i COULDN’T touch the steel wool without gloves, and i was meant to use it to clean all the sinks out… I cried until the boss said i could go buy rubber gloves. He thought it was kinda funny but could see i was genuinly upset by the idea… Also dirty hands and feet, it makes me feel sick if my feet are dirty and some one touches them, like i get a tingle in my mouth like im going to throw up!January 3, 2012 at 12:54 pm #517761RobyneMember
I make my own Sherbert and we use licorice as its stick. I have coloured mine with natural food colouring instead of jelly mix.
I remember when we lived in England in the 60s a lolly shop near us, having huge jars of the stuff, all in different colours and when you asked for some it came in a twisted piece of paper and a stick of licorice but it was a tube and the ends cut so it looked like a spoon. They called it KaylieJanuary 3, 2012 at 1:46 pm #517762
Its ok, the kids dont mind using their fingers, and i have had enough sherbet this week. Robyne the jelly i have has no artificial colours or flavours so its ok…January 3, 2012 at 4:02 pm #517763
I wouldn’t be giving sugary stuff to a child with skin issues – just sayin’ 😉January 3, 2012 at 4:58 pm #517764
1 1/2 tbs of sugar between 6 kids and 2 adults – can’t see much harm there…..January 3, 2012 at 5:00 pm #517765
well theres 6 kids, so i cant deny one. And there seems to be nothing he CAN eat just because he has dermatitis. Im not really worried about the two dips of sherbet that he ate. If he was eating it by the spoonfull all day long i might…January 3, 2012 at 5:41 pm #517766
Each to their own :shrug:
We totally cut out sugar, starches and grains to heal our children. Even a small amount is too much when one is healing and sealing the gut and healing the asthma, skin issues, autism etc!! GAPS protocol :tup:January 3, 2012 at 6:06 pm #517767
That’s interesting UB. Wouldn’t the sugars in most fruits etc negate that? And as there are starches in so many plant foods, I imagine it would almost be impossible to avoid.
Not being smart, I’m just curious. I’ll have to do a bit more research on it.January 3, 2012 at 7:14 pm #517768

That diet is far too extreme for a 2 yo with dermatitis. And, when you consider that out of 6 kids he is the only one with a problem, and they all eat the same things, isnt that a bit odd? Also he is a twin, which again is odd that his sister is fine, eats like a normal child (actually, we have yet to find anything she wont eat, including rocks and sticks), and behaves in a perfectly normal way..? All this to me suggests that his skin condition was not caused and can not be cured by avoiding foods that millions of people around the world have been eating for thousands of years with no ill effects. Until there is scientific proof that eating sherbet will give my child a genetic skin problem, which, by the way he has had since he was 3 days old (when he was still being fed colostrum), i’ll continue to give him sherbet.January 3, 2012 at 8:32 pm #517769
If you look properly at the research, there is a clear connection between gut disbiosis and skin issues. Sugar feeds the bad bacteria in the gut and exacerbates issues such as eczema and dermatitiis. Most illness can be traced back to gut problems. I am stating fact. I don’t care what you feed your kids, I was just linking this back to another thread where you were asking for help, Crystal. The GAPS protocol is not a diet where one restricts food indefinitely. It is a healing regime and it has, and is healing many. I am very passionate about this and take every opportunity to pass this info on.January 3, 2012 at 9:01 pm #517770
Hi uglybetty, this is worthy of a thread of its own I reckon. I know I’m confused over the amount of information out there that often seems to be very contradictory. Would you consider starting a thread with some relevant links?
I have gotten into kefir in the last six months, have looked at ferments and recently looked at things like ACV. I know there are many others here who are interested in the same.
I love this information sharing…….. 🙂January 3, 2012 at 9:16 pm #517771
I am aware of the thread, but this is not it. I read your comments there and went to the website and did my own research. And it was my choice to not follow the advice, so thank you for offering it over on the other thread, thats fine, but here is not the place for it.
So like steve said, start your own thread and allow those who choose to come and read it and comment. Dont try to force your opinion on people who never asked for it.
