WOW! This turned out great! It was so easy! I just used some, how do you say, extremely ripe bananas, pureed them in the food processor, and it was awesome! I don't think I've ever so much as heard of banana sorbet, and if THAT was so good, imagine the possibilities!

Good stuff! My fave ice cream parlor in town makes plum sorbet, but it's seasonal (and EXPENSIVE) so I thought I'd try making my own. What a great, versatile, and simple recipe! I used red plums and peaches, and threw in a TB of lemon juice- I also used 1/2 the boiling water to dissolve the sugar, then used ice cubes to make up the other half- so no chilling time was necessary for the sugar syrup, it all went straight into the ice cream maker. The sorbet turned out perfect. I will be using this recipe over and over again!

Refreshing! To save even more time, I used 2 cups frozen Trader Joe mixed berries. Microwave the water in measuring cup, dissolve sugar in same cup, then dump into blender with frozen berries. Purée is cold enough to go straight in the ice cream maker - 20 min later, yum!
