We made this sorbet for ourselves and some friends, and it was a big hit. The perfect ruby color and smooth, cold sweet strawberry flavor comprised an excellent dessert for a fun get-together.
Recipe from Ezra Pound Cake.
-1 lb strawberries
-1/2 c sugar
-1 T lemon juice
-1 T vodka
Blend the strawberries in a blender or food processor. I used frozen strawberries, which made it more difficult to blend without additional liquid, but which ultimately accelerated the process of making the frozen sorbet treat.
After blending, transfer the strawberries to a bowl, add and mix until dissolved the sugar, lemon juice and vodka. The vodka's purpose is to lower the freezing point of the sorbet for a smoother product; it does not affect the taste.
Keep the sorbet mixture cold until you are ready to finish it in your home ice cream maker.
Make sure that you have prepared the ice cream maker's mixing bowl beforehand, and mix the sorbet according to the ice cream maker instructions.
Return the sorbet to the freezer until it is ready to be served.
It may be cold outside, but we can still enjoy a delicious, low fat treat indoors with friends. This strawberry sorbet delivers and was very easy to put together.
