Memorial Day – it marks the beginning of summer, the end of school and a time of remembrance and observance. Strawberries are in season and the weather is turning hot, so what better time for a delicious cold Strawberry Sorbet.
1 pound fresh strawberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon raspberry liqueur (optional)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
pinch of salt
Rinse, hull out and slice strawberries. Place in medium bowl with sugar and raspberry liqueur (if using), stirring until sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Place strawberries in a blender with their liquid, lemon juice and salt and blend until smooth. Press mixture through a strainer to remove seeds. Chill mixture for an additional hour, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacture’s directions.
Serve frozen with a big dollop of Whipped Cream. Delicious!
