There aren’t a lot of secrets to making good sorbet: a mixture of fruit, sugar, and… whatever else. Good sorbets come from good fruit. It’s simple, so quality matters.
While I’m interested in trying sorbets from non-traditional ingredients, this guide focuses on using fruit.
- 1 lb. fruit (in this case I used .5 lb strawberries and .5 lb red raspberries)
- 1.25 cups sugar
- lemon juice
Put everything into a blender and mix. Then take the mixture and strain out the seeds of the fruit. I strain out 80% or so of the seeds and do not strain the last bit, just to have a little “authenticity” to the mixture.
Cool down the mixture in the refrigerator. Then pour the mixture into an ice cream maker until solid.
Using a little alcohol helps with a texture I like; you shouldn’t taste it.
