Beautiful Strawberry Sorbet

Kitchen Play List:  No Doubt ~ The Singles 1992 - 2003

How do you make some shabby looking strawberries into a bright vibrant red cooling treat? Make them into this sorbet! I cannot express how beautiful the smell is whilst making this sorbet or how beautiful it looks in its many stages through to completion. And it tastes as good as it smells and looks...marvelous! 

Yes I have gone with the original recipe and that does use sugar syrup but as sorbet is only supposed to be eaten in small quantities I can live with that.

(Recipe posted up by Anon on website)

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 cups water
2 cups of pureed strawberries

Dissolve the sugar and cornstarch in the water in a large saucepan over a low heat, then boil until it has thickened. (Mine didn't thicken that much but you could tell a big difference between the water and the syrup!! R) Remove from heat and let cool. 

When the sugar syrup is completely cooled, add the pureed fruit and mix well. Place in a plastic container, uncovered,until it is solid. ( I left mine overnight R)

Cut the sorbet into chunks. then process in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. 

Put the sorbet back into the freezer and allow to freeze for another 4 hours. 

Enjoy!...and you me! lol
