Saturday we took a trip about an hour south to visit our favorite peach orchard. The peaches this year are plentiful and delicious! Of course I bought too many, but is there anything better than a fresh peach? I just can't help myself!
I filled a big basket on my kitchen counter with SOME of the peaches. We've eaten them with yogurt, in last night's shortcake and today I decided to try a new recipe for sorbet that I had saved from Eating Well website.
1 1/2 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
4 fresh peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
6 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Stir water, sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add peaches bring to a simmer and cook COVERED for 10 minutes.
Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add lime zest, juice and salt. Be careful when using the blender and hot liquid. Either blend in two batches or hold the lid tightly in place when you puree the mixture.
Puree until smooth. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan and refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.
Freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions or pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid and chop in food processor. I actually think you could just freeze in ice cube trays and put them in a glass and eat them.
Can I just say that this is delicious!
It was easy and so refreshing.
I will be making this again before the week is over!
Because we enjoyed this so much, I am going to
