Summer Strawberry Sorbet

Sorbet is one of my favorite desserts! Ice cream is great too, but there's something about sorbet that I really love. So I made this strawberry sorbet!  I got this recipe from the cookbook Sorbets and Ice Creams by Lou Seibert Pappas, but I just changed it a little bit. Hope you enjoy!


3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice                 
3-3/4  cups fresh
Strawberries, hulled

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water, bring to a boil while stirring, and cook until the syrup is clear. Stir in the lemon juice. Let cool, cover, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, or until thoroughly chilled. In a blender or food processor, puree the strawberries, and stir in the chilled syrup.

Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until thoroughly chilled.

Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. You can also freeze without an ice cream maker: Pour the mixture into a 8 or 9 inch square metal pan or a half-gallon plastic container. Cover with aluminum foil, plastic wrap or a lid. Place in the freezer and freeze until firm, about 2 to 3 hours. Transfer to an electric mixer or food processor and beat until light and fluffy. Transfer to a container, cover, and freeze until firm, about 1 to 2 hours.

After you are finished making your sorbet, serve it in a bowl with
 strawberry leaves, and/or strawberries.

Hope you enjoyed my post! Until next time!
