Pomp And Circumstance

Grapefruit Sorbet

As the temperatures rise, a sweet cool treat is just what the doctor ordered. Yesterday, the temperature climbed to around 80, and I decided it was the perfect day to try my hand at sorbet.

After bouncing around the internet and pulling ideas from a few different recipes, here’s what I came up with:

  • 3 cups freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (for me it took about 4 red grapefruits)
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grapefruit zest

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, zest, and 1/2 cup grapefruit juice and simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Stir in the remainder of the grapefruit juice and set aside until room temperature. Place the saucepan in the refrigerator and cool completely. Once cool, pour the mixture into an ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet maker and follow the manufacturers instructions.

I allowed my sorbet to freeze overnight after being processed in the ice cream maker and this morning the texture was absolutely perfect, and the sorbet delicious!

Give my recipe a try and let me know what you think!

I hope you love it as much as I do!
