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!
We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
