Strawberry Sorbet

Pure vanilla extract makes this strawberry sorbet recipe special. You can use freshly picked or frozen strawberries for this perfect cooling dessert.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups hulled strawberries, (about 2 pounds), fresh or frozen (see Tips)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

Step 1
Puree strawberries in a food processor until smooth.
Step 2
Combine water, lemon juice, vanilla and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.
Step 3
Stir the syrup into the fruit puree. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until cold, about 4 hours.
Step 4
Pour the sorbet mixture into an ice cream maker. (No ice cream maker? See Tips.) Freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Tips

Tips: If using frozen fruit, measure it frozen and then thaw before pureeing. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan or ice cube trays until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
