Recipe - Sorbet

I decided to try my hand at making my own sorbet, since Baskin Robbins only has one flavour I can have.

The two I made were Blueberry Peach and Strawberry Cherry.

Blueberry Peach:

1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups Peaches (roughly 5 medium peaches)
1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups Blueberries (use 1 1/2 cups for the flavour you want stronger)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 tbsp Mango or Citrus juice

Boil peaches in water to loosen skin; peel and slice (freestone peaches are easier for this.) Process cut peaches and blueberries in a blender or food processor with juice.

In a pot, bring sugar and water to a boil over medium-high and reduce to roughly 1 1/4 cup of syrup. Add together blended fruit and syrup and freeze in a large ceramic dish (the larger it is, faster/more even it will freeze.)

When it is frozen but still soft-ish (1 1/2 hrs or so), take it out and spoon into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Pour into freezer safe container and freeze. When frozen, take it out and enjoy! Best if let sit for a minute or so to soften before scooping.

Strawberry Cherry

1 1/2 cups Strawberry (stems removed)
1 1/4 cups Cherries (pits and stems removed...I left skins on, it's much easier)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 tbsp Mango or Citrus juice

Use same process!
