Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 to 1.5 quarts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 16 ounces (or a little more) fresh strawberries
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Pinch sea salt
  1. Fresh Strawberry Sorbet
  2. Place water and sugar in a small pan and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute while stirring to make sure sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Puree the strawberries, lemon juice, the tiny pinch of salt, and the cooled syrup in a blender or food processor.
  4. If desired, strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer. Chill the puree until very cold and freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions.
  5. Alternatively, freeze the puree in a large, flat container, or bowl. Stir every couple of hours with a whisk or fork until the mixture is frozen enough to scoop.
