Strawberry & rose sorbet
- Preparation and cooking time
- Plus 1-2 hrs freezing
- Serves 6 (makes about 1.5 litres)
A ruby-red iced dessert with subtle floral hints – a refreshing end to spicy meals
- STEP 1
In a medium pan, combine the sugar with 300ml water. Let the sugar dissolve, then bring to the boil for 1 min. Put the strawberries in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Trickle in the sugar syrup, blend again, then add the lemon juice and rose water.
- STEP 2
Pour the strawberry mixture into a large freezer-proof container (an old ice cream tub is perfect), then freeze until almost solid, mashing in the ice crystals every 1-2 hrs until the sorbet is thick and smooth. Wrap well and freeze until solid. Allow to soften for 15 mins before scooping. Best eaten within a month.
