Strawberry Sorbet


1 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups water
1 lemon juiced, and zest grated
2 pints ripe strawberries, pureed
1/2 cup fruit juice (apple)

Bring water, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and boil for 1 min. Cool and add strawberry puree and juice. Stir until well combined.

Pour into a prepared ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions.

The lemon zest can be omitted for a smoother texture. It tends to clump around the dasher.

How much lemon zest do you use?

As much as you'd like! You can use the zest from the whole lemon that you are juicing. Or use less if you don't care for that much.

How long do you freeze it for

Grace and Nicole - freeze according to the instructions on your ice cream maker. I see that might not be clean in the instructions. I will update them.

Thanks for the recipe! We substituted lime (2Tbsp) for the lemon because of an allergy, and it was great! My girls love it!! I modified it a little: I heated water just enough to melt sugar, added cold apple juice and lime juice (to save cooling time), pureed frozen organic strawberries in my vitamix added the liquids-blended. Placed mixture into my ice-cream maker and let run for about 25 min. Sorbet was ready to eat at this point. I stored the rest in an ice-cream storage container in the freezer. I hope this helps anyone who is thinking of making this easy, wonderful recipe. Thank you Kathy for the post!
