Spring is here, wooo hoooo!!! That makes me really happy. Spring is my favorite season, I'm sure I mentioned that before.
I couple of months ago I got an ice cream maker as a gift (my very first one) from my awesome cousin Raquel and I was just waiting for the right moment to use it.
I've been busy this week with a couple of projects but I had to make time to share with you this AMAZING recipe: Strawberry-Orange sorbet. It is so refreshing. I know, it's only Spring not Summer, but I couldn't wait until then to post it.
4 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 cup water
1 cup fresh orange juice plus the zest
1/2 cup sugar
In a saucepan, place the sugar, orange juice and water and bring it to a boil. Let it boil until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Add the strawberries and the orange zest and let the mixture boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Using a hand blender (regular blender works just fine just do it in small badges) Puree the mixture and then pass the it through a fine mesh strainer. Let it come to room temperature and place in the refrigerator to chill. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
