Strawberry Orange Sorbet

This summer has definetly been a scorcher, which can be an odd thing when you live in Pennslyvania. The temperatures have soared into the 90’s, and it seems like we haven’t much more than a few drops of rain in the last few weeks. As much as I love the summer heat, I am definetly craving fall. Cooler weather, football tailgaiting and lots of pumpkin treats – bring it on!

Until then, it looks like I will be making lots of ice cream, popsicles, and margaritas to keep us from overheating. This sorbet is light, refreshing and perfect to cool down on a hot summer day. I love the combination of the oranges and strawberries, but it could easily be adapted with other fruits. (Mango orange? Raspberry peach? So many possibilites!) 

Strawberry Orange Sorbet
Yields: 2 cups

4 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 cup water
1 cup fresh orange juice plus the zest
1/2 cup sugar

In a large saucepan, stir together the sugar, orange juice and water, then bring to a boil. Let it boil for about 3 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the strawberries and orange zest and boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Using either a hand blender or a regular, puree the mixture. Allow for it to come to room temperature, then refrigerate until well chilled.

Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.
