Did you know that sorbet is one of the easiest desserts to make of all time? All you need is fruit, sweetener, a pinch of salt, maybe a little water, and a little bit of patience.
With peaches in season and at a great price, what better way to use them up than making sorbet with them?! It’s refreshing and you don’t need any special equipment to make it.
As you will see in the video, it was a big hit with my family including the dogs. Here’s how to make peach sorbet:
- 5 large peaches (peeled and pitted)
- 1/4-1/2 c sugar
- 2 tbsp water (if needed)
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp lemon juice
Put all of your ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Strain the puree through a mesh strainer. Pour the strained puree into a shallow, freezer safe dish. Cover and put in the freezer.
Allow to freeze for 3 hours.
After 3 hours, remove dish from the freezer, uncover, and use a fork to break up the ice crystals in the sorbet. This will help to loosen the sorbet instead of having a big clump of peach ice. Cover the dish and put back into the freezer for an additional 3 hours.
When you’re ready to serve the sorbet, remove your dish from the freezer. Break up your sorbet into clumps and put into your blender or food processor. Pulse until your sorbet is smooth. Serve immediately.
**Hint: I also noticed that as the sorbet sat out on the counter and softened, it also became creamy, just not as icy. Whether you buzz in the food processor or let it warm up a little on the counter, it’s a treat that you will love.
* Frozen peaches can be used in place of the fresh peaches.
With all of the heat and humidity that we’ve been having, this treat is so refreshing and yummy. You have to give it a try!
