Fresh Strawberry Sorbet

Fruit sorbets are wonderfully light and refreshing, with a grainy consistency, and they only require mixing together blended fruit, water, sugar, and lemon juice. I bought some beautiful strawberries from Chinatown the other day but unfortunately they are lack of sweetness and flavor. So the best thing to do is either makes some Jam or sorbets. If you can’t find fresh strawberry you can always use frozen unsweetened strawberries. The sorbet can be processed in an ice cream maker or simply frozen in a shallow container.

Ingredietns :

1 cups water
1 cup sugar
3 pounds of strawberry
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup fresh orange juice

1. Put water and sugar in heavy saucepan over high heat until sugar dissolves. Boil 5 minutes. Leave it to cool.
2. Puree strawberries in food processor until smooth. Add strawberry puree , orange and lemon juices to cool sugar syrup; stir to blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
3. If you are making the sorbet in ice-cream maker process strawberry mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions or place mixture in shallow container and freeze, stirring every hour until set, about 6 hours.


Note: If sorbet is frozen solid, place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to soften.
