Fruit Sorbet – 4 ways (Serves 8)

Ingredients

Honeydew Sorbet

• 1 ½ Lbs. honeydew melon, peeled – cut into chunks and frozen
• ½ cup granulated sugar (1/4 cup of honey can be used instead)
• ¼ cup water
• 1 Tbs. Vodka (optional) (This helps to keep the sorbet soft, and prevents it from getting too icy)


Pineapple Sorbet
• 1½ Lbs. pineapple, peeled – cut into chunks and frozen
• ½ cup granulated sugar (1/4 cup of honey can be used instead)
• ¼ cup water
• 1 Tbs. Vodka (optional) (This helps to keep the sorbet soft, and prevents it from getting too icy)


Strawberry Sorbet 

• 1½ Lbs. strawberries, cored, cut, and frozen
• ½ cup granulated sugar (1/4 cup of honey can be used instead)
• ¼ cup water
• 1 Tbs. Vodka (optional) (This helps to keep the sorbet soft, and prevents it from getting too icy)

Peach Sorbet 

• 1 ½ Lbs. peaches, deseeded, cut, and frozen
• ½ cup granulated sugar (1/4 cup of honey can be used instead)
• ¼ cup water
• 1 Tbs. Vodka (optional) (This helps to keep the sorbet soft, and prevents it from getting too icy)


Directions 

1. Cut up your fruit in ½-1-inch pieces. Place each piece of fruit on a parchment paper lined sheet pan, even spaced, in a single layer.

2. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until frozen.

3. To make each sorbet, place 1 ½ Lbs. of the frozen fruit into the bowl of a food processor. Add the sugar, water and vodka (if using).

4. Pulse the fruit in short bursts, until a smooth paste has formed. Transfer the sorbet into a loaf pan, and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours to firm up before serving.
