|20 minutes in my ice cream machine and the sorbet is to a soft serve consistency.|
Ingredients for my Basic Fruit Sorbet:
4 C. fresh washed fruit ( I made a batch of strawberry and a batch of blueberry.)
1/4 C. fresh squeezed lemon juice (Any citrus will work.)
1 C. sugar
1 C. water
1/4 C. corn syrup
2-3 T. Vodka, optional
Stir the sugar and water together and bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to simmer and leave for 5 minutes. Pour into a jar or bowl, cover, and refrigerate.
|I pitched a few stray strawberries in along with the blueberries to use them up.|
|The double straining insures a velvety smooth sorbet plus it gets the seeds out.|
Chill overnight then churn according to mfg. direction. So pretty and so good! Each batch should yield a quart of sorbet.
My first batch the strawberry is delicious! Tomorrow I will freeze a batch of blueberry I have waiting in the refrigerator. SURE BEATS TURNING ON THE OVEN IN THIS 90 DEGREE HEAT!
I am posting early in case anyone wants to try this for the 4th!
Have a lovely 4th of July and be safe!
