I go apple picking with my family every year, and since my due date is towards the end of September this year (which is when we normally go) we decided to bump it up to the end of August instead. No apples were available since we went so early, but we got a delicious assortment of peaches, tomatoes and potatoes instead. I thought it was a nice change of pace.
I wanted to make something refreshing with my load of peaches, so I opted to use my new KitchenAid Ice Cream maker and make some sorbet. The result was a perfectly icy mixture with a blend of sweet and tart flavors. This is a great palate cleanser after a hearty summer meal. Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 4 cups ripe peaches, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
Add the peaches to a blender. Once the syrup is cool, add the syrup and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
Freeze the purée using an ice cream maker. This usually takes about 12-15 minutes, but use the manufacturer’s directions. In the meantime, place a container in the freezer to chill. Once sorbet is done, scoop into chilled container and freeze until solid.
