Fresh Strawberry Sorbet Recipe
Yields: 8 to 10 servings
Prep time: 15 min
1 cup granulated
1 cup water
2 pints fresh ripe
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water. Stir until mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat
to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand approximately 10 minutes.
Lightly rinse and dry the strawberries; hull and cut in halves. In a food processor or blender, puree the strawberries with 1/4 cup of the sugar syrup.
Add lemon juice, vodka, and pureed strawberries to the remaining sugar syrup; stir until thoroughly blended.
The vodka (or any other type of alcohol) is the secret to a soft sorbet. Alcohol itself does not freeze and adding
a little bit keeps the sorbet from doing the same. Vodka is excellent to use because it doesn't affect the taste.
Ice Cream Maker

Freezer Method- Pour into container, cover, and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it up
with a fork and refreeze again. When frozen, place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.
