Strawberry Vanilla Sorbet with Lime

jordgubbssorbet

Sorbets don't photograph very well, but wow, they're so tasty and refreshing! This one was a particular winner for us - we had some leftover strawberries that were a bit too ripe to eat, but they were wonderful like this.

This is an entry for "Hay Hay it's Donna Summer Day!" - an event that I haven't managed to play in before, but as the theme is sorbet; well, perfect then. I'm a little late though - but for many other sorbet recipes, check out Eat, Drink, Live as I'm sure the round-up from this event will be up soon, and it should be great!

Leaving for Dalarna today, so I won't be around to answer any e-mails - but I'll have posts magically appear here, so you won't really notice that I'm gone. Hopefully.

Strawberry Vanilla Sorbet with Lime

400 g fresh strawberries
140 g home made vanilla sugar (just stick some vanilla beans in a jar of sugar and let it stand - it will be wonderful after a few weeks. Just add more sugar as you use it.)
1-2 tsp Rose's Lime Cordial

Slice the berries and mix in a large bowl with the sugar. Let it stand for about an hour until all the sugar is dissolved - stir every now and then.

Mix with a handheld mixer or in a blender, and add the lime. Cool the mixture completely - preferrably overnight - and then churn it in an ice cream machine for about 15-20 minutes.

The more I read recipes of ice cream and sorbet, the more I have strong craving of making my own flavor ice cream and sorbet. Have to put this under my 'must try' list. I've made lemon sugar before and it's really refreshing. Have to try vanilla sugar soon !
