Strawberry Sorbet

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:

  • 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.
