DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the pear juice, sugar, pears and lemon zest and juice in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until the pears are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the pears from the liquid and set aside.
  • Continue cooking the liquid until syrupy and reduced by half, about 15 minutes more. Let cool slightly.
  • Puree the pears and the pear syrup in a blender until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve into a bowl. Chill in the freezer until partially frozen, about 1 hour.
  • Beat the pear mixture with a whisk until creamy. Return the bowl to the freezer and repeat the whisking process every hour until the sorbet has a smooth, luscious texture (about 4 hours total).
  • To serve, scoop the sorbet into bowls and garnish with candied ginger and basil.
  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use an ice cream maker if you have one; follow the manufacturer's instructions.
