When peaches are in season, there is nothing quite like this sorbet!
Every summer, I look forward to the first peaches that show up at the farm stand. Of course I love making tarts, pies, and cobblers-but sometimes you need a recipe that is just about the peach! This is the one! It’s incredibly simple to make and so refreshing-it tastes just like you are biting into a fresh peach!
What you need:
Peaches – Four ripe peaches, ones that you would be happy to slice and eat!
Granulated Sugar – A little sugar is necessary for this recipe.
Lemon Juice – Fresh lemon juice Brings a bright flavor and helps keep the bright orange color.
Vodka – Just a splash of alcohol helps with the texture when the sorbet freezes.
How to make the sorbet:
Cut the peaches into 1/2 inch pieces. I don’t peel the peaches-once it is puréed there will be tiny little flecks and a nice texture to the sorbet. If you want a perfectly smooth sorbet, peel the peaches first. Purée the peaches in a food processor with the granulated sugar, lemon juice, and vodka.
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker or gelato maker and churn for 45 minutes, or until thick and frozen.
Transfer to a quart container and freeze for an hour or two before enjoying.
