Cool for Hot day

Hot hot-1-July 2015-001

Few days ago there was the hottest day so-far in this year.  

Fortunately or unfortunately, unlike Japan where the season has distinctive

extreme, but this is the England = even hottest would be mere 30°C though,

with no air conditioner, 30°C is pretty hot.

Other locals might be having a chilled drink with ice on it or ice stick,

ice cream kind.  But a poor man like me can not afford to buy an ice cream. 

Instead, I’m making an ice sherbet / frozen juice, what ever it’s called.  

Just put a fruits juice (here an apple juice) into a tin cup and make it frozen.  

Then break an ice with a knife / ice-pick to make it flaky and eat it.  How cool.  

Provided the juice was a pure fruits juice with minimum additives, or 

homemade would be even better  (though need to have a machine !)  

It is very cheap = two day’s supply would be as cheap as £0.70 !

To make the frozen juice flaky, use a knife held firmly against the wall of the

ice pit and rotate the cup to scrape the ice.  ( The photo above right )

When you try, you can get a knack soon. ( = Move the ice, not the knife)

(But the cup got to be a cylindrical tincup

— never try this with typical flower-shaped teacup.)

Japanese women’s football, Nadeshiko team lost  W-cup to US — still,

Have a nice day.  🙂

    Looks very good. I don’t think I need it to survive, we had two hot days now (24 degrees), and this might be it for this summer. I have to admit I bought one frozen icecream, sherbet-style. It helped. I try to remember this if it happens again, heat I mean….

      24 degree for the hottest day is quite cool. In Japan hottest could be 39 degree and the coldest could be -40 degree. The climate of England seemed similar to the northern Japan. But not in winter — about the snow, northern Japan is having up to 10 m (not a joke, over 30 feet) of it.

      Thank you Elena. I’m almost addicted for it.
