I fell in love with making ices after living and working in France. This one is wonderful. Enjoy it!
Its interesting that strawberries in late Feb through March are quite delicious if you look around for the right ones. I love sorbet – courtesy of my stay in France. Give me sorbet any day over icecream or gelatti.
|500g strawberries or raspberries||285g (10 oz) sugar||120 ml (0.25 pint) water|
|juice 1 lemon||juice 1 orange||4 Tblspn orange liqueur or kirsch|
Liquidise the fruit, for example, in a blender. Make a syrup of the sugar and water, or better still, use liquid glucose. When it is cool, add the fruit puree and the orange juice. Strain through a sieve.
Taste, and adjust sweetness with lemon juice or additional sugar syrup. If too thick, dilute with a little extra water.
Place in the icecream maker. About half way through the freezing process, gradually add the liqueur to the icecream maker. Continue freezing until ready to transfer to the freezer.
