The sweet, dissolving aspects of this dessert not only enhance the final memory of delightful tastes, but also goes down smooth.  The rapidity of sweet burst of flavor combined with the feel of frozen sweetness as it melts away is somewhat reminiscent of cotton candy.  The volume is tantalizingly big, but the final result of the spun sugar fibers is a fast-dissolving burst of flavor.  Enjoying this sorbet is similar: no matter how big a bowl you serve, it will be gone before you know it, and even the fullest belly can stand to sample another bite!

Strawberry Sorbet Recipe

Grab your ingredients as listed below, and get started.  The process takes less time if you have an ice cream maker available, but you can finish the recipe with or without one.  Either way, this sorbet is amazing.

Strawberry Sorbet Ingredients

6 cups of strawberries (strawberries can be substituted, conversions here. You can also freeze your own)

2 lemons

10 ounces of icing sugar

nylon sieve

Strawberry Sorbet Recipe Directions

First, wash and hull the strawberries.  Then, crush them and rub them through the nylon sieve to remove the seeds.

Juice the two lemons.  Add the juice from the two lemons to the crushed and strained strawberries and whisk in the 10 ounces of icing sugar.

Once the lemon juice, sugar, and strawberries are well mixed, pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn it until it is frozen.  This is the easiest and quickest way, but if you don't have an ice cream maker you aren't out of luck with this recipe!  Simply pour the mixture into a tray and then scratch the sorbet up into shards when it is almost solid.  Place the shards back into the freezer and freeze it for an additional hour prior to serving.

The final texture will be smoother using the ice cream maker to churn until frozen, but both will be delicious!
