Fresh Strawberry Sorbet

Here's a recipe for a dessert guaranteed to garner raves from your family and is very easy to prepare. The strawberry sorbet only has three ingredients. I would recommend either purchasing the 1 lb. container of fresh strawberries the day before or the morning of the day that the desert is served. It also helps to serve the strawberry sorbet in a goblet - style glass. The kids thinks it looks cool that way. This recipe was found in the book, Cooking Thin With Chef Kathleen, by Kathleen Daelemans.

1 lb fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar, plus more if needed
1/4 cup cold apple juice

1. Rinse, then cut blemishes and tops off strawberries.
2. Cut strawberries into quarters depending on size.
3. Place cut strawberries into freezer bag and place into freezer.
4. Remove frozen fruit from freezer and place into bowl of food processer.
5. Add suger to bowl of food processer.
6. Puree fruit by pulsing proceessor on and off while gradually adding apple juice just until sorbet becomes will blended, smooth, and creamy.
7. Serve immediately.

If you don't have a food processer available, then use a blender. For blender, will need to initially alternate between chop and mix settings while still in frozen state. It will also require to power off/on blender between chop and mix each time and move frozen fruit around in blender with knife while blender is off. Once chopped/mixed well, then can alternate between chop, mix, and puree settings on blender until right consistency.
