My normal feeling is that strawberries are best suited to ice cream and raspberries are best suited to sorbet. This recipe confirmed that for me, but it was still a delicious sorbet. I made this Strawberry Sorbet by request for a friend’s birthday. It’s a simple recipe:
- 800g fresh strawberries puréed
- 410g sugar
- 410ml water
- 1/3 lemon
I made less sugar syrup than normal knowing I did not want this to be too sweet. So I dissolved 410g sugar into 410g water. I mixed the syrup with the puréed and strained strawberries and squeezed in a third of a lemon.
Cranked as usual.
It was delicious, not to sweet, and with great strawberry flavour. Still, I prefer it as an ice cream.
