Got this one from "The Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Cookbook" by Mable and Gar Hoffman. This is what happens when you buy strawberries from Costco -- you've got to come up with a LOT of recipes to use 'em up. This was a delightful sorbet, made with fresh Valencia orange juice and extremely ripe strawberries. I varied the original recipe a bit by throwing in a quarter (well, closer to a half) cup of orange-flavored liqueur at the end of the freeze cycle.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup water
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 2 cups strawberries (as ripe as possible ( you want a lot of flavor)
  • 12 cup orange juice, fresh

Directions

  1. Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan. Stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil; boil gently for five minutes, then set aside to cool.
  2. Remove caps from strawberries, then puree in a blender or food processor.
  3. Combine pureed strawberries, cooled syrup, and orange juice; stir until well blended.
  4. Refrigerate for a minimum of four hours,or overnight if possible.
  5. Transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Optional: About five minutes before sorbet is finished, add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of Grand Marnier, Triple Sec, or other orange-flavored liqueur.
