#20 Strawberry Sorbet
1 lb strawberries
1/4 cup orange or apple juice
~1/4 cup sugar
Layout some plastic wrap on a cookie sheet. Slice the strawberries into about 1/4" to 1/2" pieces and put on cookie sheet. Cover with another layer of plastic wrap and seal the edges. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer. When the strawberries are frozen pull them out and put them in a food processor or a blender. Add the juice to the stawberries. Blend until smooth. Add the sugar and blend until thoroughly mixed (you can add more or less sugar to your taste). I also added a few splashes of milk to make it a little creamier. You can either serve it right away or put it in a container, put it back in the freezer and serve later. After you have refrozen it, make sure to leave it out about 10-15 minutes to let it thaw a bit.
I think if you add enough milk it gets to be more like Sherbert rather than Sorbet.
This is an easy recipe for ice cream without the ice cream maker!
