Equipment

  • ice cream maker/freezer

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe peaches
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • In a small/medium saucepan combine the water, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir to (mostly) dissolve the sugar.
  • Bring to a gentle boil over high heat and turn down to medium. Boil gently for three minutes. Set aside. (I set aside in the fridge).
  • Peel and cut the peaches into smaller portions. Use the parboil method for ease of peeling. (See video in post above.)
  • Place the peeled peaches and simple syrup you made in a blender. Blend on high till it turns to a smooth peach puree.
  • If your ice cream maker requires that you cool or chill the puree, do so before proceeding.
  • Transfer to your ice cream freezer. Freeze according to directions on your ice cream maker/freezer.
  • When the desired sorbet consistency is reached eat right away or spoon the frozen mixture into an airtight freezer container.
  • You can save in the freezer for up to two weeks. If the sorbet is too frozen to scoop, allow to rest on the counter for about five minutes to soften slightly.

Notes

  1. Add in the time needed to freeze your ice cream maker/container if necessary.
  2. You can cut the sugar down to as little as 3 Tablespoons. The sorbet will not be as sweet and will be a little icier. 
  3. This recipe makes 8 one-half cup servings because half cup servings seem to be the industry standard. My servings are never that small...
