Strawberry Sorbet

Dessert in last week's cooking class was Strawberry Sorbet!  A sweet and refreshing treat for the warmer days that have been popping in and out during the last month.  This recipe (courtesy of Jan Tang-Sayvongsa) not only has fresh strawberries chunks in it but freshly squeezed lemon and orange juice which really brighten up the flavors and add a punch of citrus. I can't wait to make more for summer!

What you'll need: 1 quart

2 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup diced strawberries
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the water and sugar to a boil.  Add the strawberries, lower the heat and simmer for 5 mins.  Remove from heat, stir in the orange and lemon juice.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until completely chilled.  Churn in your ice cream machince according to the machine's instructions.  If you don't have an ice cream maker, place in a baking dish, freeze and stir every 20-30 mins until set.  And voila, Strawberry Sorbet!
