  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 5h

8 servings, 1/2 cup each (1 quart)

This tart, refreshing sorbet makes an elegant end to a summer meal. Always smell peaches before you buy them to make sure they're sweet and ready to eat.

Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in a resealable plastic container for up to 1 week.

ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 pound fresh peaches or nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 6 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

directions

Stir the water, sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the peaches (or nectarines); bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add the lime zest, juice and salt; blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until cold, 4 hours or overnight.

Freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions. (Alternatively, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Unmold the cubes, place half in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process, scraping the sides as necessary, until fairly smooth but still icy. Repeat with the remaining cubes).
