Sweet, soft strawberry sorbet that will rival any brand bought in the grocery store. Not being able to find the perfect recipe, I made up my own! Most homemade sorbets resemble an icy slushie, but this one is thickened before freezing, yielding a melt-in-your-mouth treat that will please even the pickiest sorbet lover! Dually great because it can be made in an ice cream freezer, or in your regular freezer.
- 1 pound ripe strawberries, hulled and chopped
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 ½ teaspoons cold water
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
Place berries in the work bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth. Combine berry puree, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan. Heat until melted and just simmering. Whisk cornstarch into the cold water; stir into heated berry mixture. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice. Cool slightly. Refrigerate berry mixture until cold, about 2 hours.
Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
