    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    This is such a wonderful summertime treat! I have used all kinds of fruit combinations in this; use your imagination. Far richer and intense in flavour than anything you can buy, and yet it's almost all just healthy fruit. The fruits that work best have a fairly smooth fleshy texture; things like mangoes, muskmelons, peaches, apricots, and bananas. But also good are strawberries, pineapple, blueberries and the like. Seedy or watery fruits can be used, but it is best to use them mixed with something that has a smoother denser texture, and to use less of them. Cook time is tempering time, but prep time does not include freezing time.

    • 3 cups peaches
    • 1 cup raspberries (add them late to retain some texture)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare the fruit by peeling, if necessary, and cutting it into chunks.
    2. 2
      Place on a plate or tray covered with plastic wrap.
    3. 3
      Make sure everything is as spread out as possible.
    4. 4
      Cover with more plastic wrap.
    5. 5
      Freeze overnight.
    6. 6
      Whiz the fruit through a food processor until very finely chopped.
    7. 7
      Add the sugar and lemon juice, adjusting either according to the sweetness and acidity levels of the fruit you are working with; if you use pineapple use orange juice or water instead of lemon or lime juice and add a little vanilla extract if it seems appropriate.
    8. 8
      Feel free to taste the mixture!
    9. 9
      Blend thoroughly, until very smooth. Scrape down the sides of the food processor regularly.

      I loved the rich and natural flavour of the sorbet, and it was really quick and easy to make, without an ice cream machine. I made a mango sorbet. I had two problems though: 1) The frozen mixture was way too dry and hard to process in a blender or food processor, so I had to use my hand blender, which always gives the smoothest results. Even then it was still difficult to mix (my blender actually started 'smoking'!). The lemon juice just wasn't enough to make it manageable, so I suggest adding more liquid, like orange juice. 2) If you add sugar to the fruit and just freeze it that way, you will taste grains of undissolved sugar in the end product, which I find quite unpleasant. I think it's better to make a syrup (by dissolving sugar in boiled water first), or add another liquid sweetener such as honey or maple syrup. To sum up, I prefer making sorbets with fresh fruit and a syrup, and freeze it in a churning machine. But with a few adaptations, this recipe is a really good alternative for people who don't have an ice cream machine. Thank you.

      YUM-O!!! I used strawberries, banana, stevia, and fresh orange juice (with a splash of vanilla). Oh wow. Very yum. Thanks!
