End of Summer Peach Sorbet


Well it’s a little late in the summer but I finally got an ice cream maker! It’s one of those things that I’ve always thought would be nice to have but with my lack of storage space in the kitchen and history of purchasing kitchen appliances that never get used, I couldn’t really justify getting one. But lately I’ve gotten into reading so many yummy food blogs and I’ve seen lots of tempting photos and recipes for homemeade ice cream. It was Mae’s Blueberry Ice Cream that finally pushed me over the edge and I broke down and ordered the ice cream maker.

Since I still have some frozen peaches left in the freezer, the first thing I decided to make was some peach sorbet. I didn’t have a recipe but I adapted the mango sorbet recipe from the Cuisinart recipe booklet that came with the machine. It turned out really well! This recipe works for a 1 1/2 quart ice cream maker.

Peach Sorbet

4 C. fresh or frozen sliced peaches
2/3 C. sugar
1/2 C. corn syrup
1 T. fresh lemon juice

1. Defrost peaches if using frozen.
2. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until thick and smooth.
3. Freeze peach mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.
4. Sorbet should be thickened in about 25 minutes; Scoop sorbet into a freezer-safe container and freeze for a few hours.
5. Buon Appetito!

    On another note, if you’ve been here before, you might have noticed a few changes on my site today. Ok, so maybe a lot of changes. Let me know what you think!

      I have that exact same ice cream maker and use it all the time. It’s so magical, putting things in and getting ice cream out. I have peaches in my freezer too and you’ve inspired me to use them for ice cream. The picture’s lovely — and your site looks very clean and inviting. Nice work! –BL

      Sometimes I hate you. I want fresh homemade peach sorbet. Maybe I’ll just have to go to Cup & Saucer to make up for it 😉

      Thanks for stopping by Jumbo Empanadas and leaving a comment!
      Your sorbet looks great, I’ve just gotten into ice cream making this summer after rescuing our ancient ice cream maker that probably hadn’t been used in about 12 years. I think the best one I’ve made so far has been coconut ice cream, sooo rich though!

      This looks great, “it’s all about the peaches” … think I’ll wait for next year’s crop, however, this year’s we had the last of just this week.

      I just discovered your website and i’ve fallen in love. This recipe looks delicious and i can’t wait to try it when the weather gets warmer. Just one question. There’s a link for Mae’s Blueberry Ice Cream, but when i click on it, doesn’t take me anywhere. I would love to try that recipe as well. Please help!
