A good quality balsamic vinegar is the key to this refreshing sorbet. It can be served either as a dessert or between courses. This recipe is from The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook. The cooling time is not reflected in the cooking or preparation time.
- In a small non-reactive saucepan, bring the vinegar to a simmer over medium-low heat.
- Cook until it is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and cool.
- Place the halved strawberries in a blender or food processor.
- Process until very smooth.
- Pass the puree through a fine-mesh sieve placed over a bowl, pressing firmly on the solids with a rubber spatula or the back of a wooden spoon to extract all the juice.
- Discard the pulp; add the balsamic reduction and honey to the puree and stir to combine.
- Cover and refrigerate until cold.
- Freeze the mixture in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
- Store in the freezer until ready to serve or for up to 2 days.
- Spoon into individual bowls and garnish with the chopped strawberries.
