Strawberry, Lime, and Gin Sorbet
Now that strawberries are finally a decent price, I felt that I could hardly deny myself the pleasure of some strawberry sorbet. It turned out the craziest, most vibrant color I've ever seen. The original recipe called for a lot more sugar, but my berries were so sweet, that I didn't really need that much. Feel free, of course to ad more as your sweet tooth demands. Original recipe also called for vodka, which I'm sure would be great, but I've always loved the combination of gin and strawberries.
Puree: 2 lbs fresh strawberries, hulled
1/2 c water
stir in: 1/2 c sugar
2 limes, juiced
a pinch salt
3 T Gin
run through your ice cream maker 1/2 hour or as directed
