Green Apple-Lime-Candied Ginger Sorbet

  • Active Time 5m
  • Total Time 2h 5m

Serves 8

The candied ginger gives this pretty pale green sorbet an elegant kick of flavor.


  • 4 tart green apples (1 pound total)
  • 2 cups unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced candied ginger
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint


Peel, core, and thinly slice 3 of the apples. Set the other aside to

use as garnish.

In a blender or food processor, combine the apples, apple juice, and

lime juice and process until smooth. Add the ginger and pulse just to mix.

Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the

manufacturer's directions.

Thinly slice the remaining apple. Spoon the sorbet into chilled

bowls and garnish with the apple slices and mint sprigs.

NOTE: The sorbet can be kept in the freezer for several days. Let it sit at

room temperature for up to an hour (depending on its hardness) before

serving. It should be pleasingly soft but not watery.
