Description

Super easy and bursting with fresh summer flavor, even in the middle of winter.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Frozen Strawberries, Thawed
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1-½ teaspoon Raspberry Liqueur (optional)
  • ⅔ cups Water
  • ⅔ cups Granulated Sugar

Preparation

Make the simple syrup by combining water and sugar together in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, stirring until the sugar completely dissolves. Stop stirring and bring mixture to a boil; continue boiling for 1 minute. Remove from heat; reserve.

Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and optional liqueur in a blender; puree until smooth. Add simple syrup to taste. Puree mixture again and then chill it completely. (I put my whole blender jar right into the fridge). When completely chilled, puree one last time.

Next, use your ice cream maker to make it into sorbet (following the manufacturer’s instructions).

Transfer sorbet to an airtight freezer-safe container; freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Allow to soften at room temperature for 10-15 minutes if it freezes too hard.

Zoedawn – Oh yea! I’m so glad you liked it. I need to make it again… it was so good.

Tyneelaine and Jrtjohnson – so sorry I didn’t read your questions before today. Yes, by all means feel free to use fresh strawberries. It will help the strawberries break down easier if you freeze them for a while first – you can skip that step if you like, but I think you’ll get a better finished product of you do it.

yea, I’d like to know about frozen vs. fresh also. I just bough half a flat of strawberries and I need to use them up.

I can’t wait to make this! Is it okay to use fresh strawberries, or do frozen give a better outcome?

We love this sorbet and have made it with strawberries as well as black raspberries. Next time think we’ll try mango.

This is awesome! I used the frozen strawberries, but skipped the liqueur too.
I don’t have an ice cream maker, so I just put the mixture in a tupperware box and froze it for an hour or two, afterwards I just took a spoon and stired it up a little, put it back in the freezer for another two hours and stired it up again.

Excellent! My husband, two-year-old and I ate it in one sitting. I used fresh berries and skipped the liqueor. I’m definitely saving this recipe. Thanks for posting it!
