A refreshing and light dessert on hot summer days.
With Alberta peaches ripe; I'm ready to make our favorite summer dessert--peach sorbet. It also takes very little cooking time (and no baking).
This recipe makes 4 servings. The ingredients are:
3/4 cup water
6 tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
medium pinch of ginger
2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 medium ripe peaches, peeled and sliced (Albertas work best)
--In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and lemon juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool slightly; transfer to a blender. Add the peaches; cover and process until smooth. Beat sorbet well with a wire whip. Transfer sorbet to a freezer container; cover and freeze. After 20 minutes, take out and beat for a few minutes. Do this twice more, 20 minutes apart. Cover and freeze for 3-4 hours.
