Strawberry Sorbet

Hello everybody! From today on, I'll try to post all my recipes in english for all our english-speaking readers. And nothing better than starting with a super-refreshing strawberry sorbet. I really wish every reader of mine could have an ice cream maker, so that they could have the same feeling as I do in these sooo hot and crazy days. This sorbet tastes just like a strawberry popsicle, incredibly delicious! And, besides being super easy to make, its colour shines all over the place.

Strawberry Sorbet
from here


1 pound (450 g) fresh strawberries, rinsed & hulled
3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
1 tsp kirsch (optional)
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
pinch of salt

Slice the strawberries and toss them in a medium bowl with the sugar and kirsch, if using, stirring until the sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and let stand for 1 hour, stirring every so often. Purée the strawberries and their liquid with the lemon juice and salt in a blender or food processor until smooth. Press the mixture through a strainer to remove seeds if you wish. Chill the mixture thoroughly, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.


  1. What a BEAUTIFUL color! I've never made sorbet before, but this is making me want to try it! I might give it a go next spring when strawberries are again in season.
