Strawberry Peach Sorbet

I have had this recipe saved for months and finally decided that with strawberries and peaches in their prime (and also very cheap), this was the time to make it.  It is definitely a fantastic sweet summer treat!  I was concerned that the strawberry flavor would overpower the peach flavor to the point of nonexistence, but the peach came through well.  I’m sure this varies depending on the ripeness and quality of the peaches, so taste the puree before freezing and adjust as necessary.  This sorbet has a really great texture, being very smooth and scoopable, and not too icy.  Yummy 😛

Strawberry Peach Sorbet

Ingredients:

1/3 cup sugar

3 cups sliced strawberries

2 medium-sized peaches, peeled and sliced

1/3 cup water

pinch of salt

 

Directions:

Mix strawberries in a bowl with sugar.  Cover and allow to sit for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  Using a blender or a food processor, combine the strawberries and their juices, peaches, water and salt and puree until smooth.  Refrigerate the mixture for at least 1 hour until the mixture is chilled.  Strain the puree through a mesh sieve to remove the strawberry seeds if desired.  Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
