I recently learned that fresh local peaches can easily be transformed into a delicious frozen treat. I used my ice cream maker to make this recipe, and it gave me yet another reason to be thrilled that I bought one just a few months ago. I seriously doubt I will ever buy ice cream (or sorbet) out of a box again. The machine is incredibly easy to use. You literally just flip a switch and 15 to 20 minutes later…voila! Not to mention that you can control exactly what ingredients go into each recipe.
Homemade Peach Sorbet
- 4 peaches
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
- 3 tablespoons water
- Slice the peaches and remove pits. There is no need to remove the peel.
- In a blender puree the peach slices, maple syrup (or honey), and water.
- Pour the mixture into frozen ice cream maker bowl and follow manufacturer instructions (in my case that meant letting it run for 15-20 minutes). Enjoy!
