Strawberry Sorbet


I'm not sure I've ever tasted anything so pure, so clean, so bright, so perfect. This strawberry sorbet is beyond amazing--AND healthy! I could go on and on, but I'll just leave you with the insistence on trying this as soon as you find delicious strawberries on sale for $0.99 a pound.

Yields: ~3 pints

2 lbs fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

Slice the strawberries and toss them in a medium bowl with the sugar, stirring until the sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and let stand for 1 hour, stirring every so often.

Puree the strawberries and their liquid with the lemon juice in a blender or food processor until smooth.  Optional: Press the mixture through a strainer to remove the seeds if you wish.  

Chill the mixture thoroughly, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
