Recipe by Dana H.
"Sweet, soft strawberry sorbet that will rival any brand bought in the grocery store. Not being able to find the perfect recipe, I made up my own! Most homemade sorbets resemble an icy slushie, but this one is thickened before freezing, yielding a melt-in-your-mouth treat that will please even the pickiest sorbet lover! Dually great because it can be made in an ice cream freezer, or in your regular freezer."

Wonderful! I can't have strawberries, so I substituted other fruit. Also, I'm not very patient, so I cooled it off first in the fridge, then in the freezer (just until cool, not frozen) so I wouldn't have to wait 2 hours. It turned out great! I've been using All Recipes for years now, but this is the first recipe I felt strongly enough about to actually rate and review. This really does turn out just like store bought sorbet - which is getting harder to find in my area. Just what I was looking for!
meh. It was more like frozen jelly than a sorbet to me. Overly sweet - and the texture was off... love the idea of this recipe, but it just didn't fly for me.
This was a great way to use up some almost too ripe strawberries. The sorbet was very silky and smooth for the first day and is fairly smooth even 3 days later. I will definitely make this again.
This was LOVELY. I doubled this recipe, used Splenda instead of sugar and I used a mixture of strawberries and blueberries. I don't have an ice cream maker so I froze it in a freezer container until solid, then scooped it back into my blender and re-blended it and then re-froze it. REALLY good, though I think the sweet could be cut back by at least a quarter next time. That's not a deal breaker, though.
This is excellent sorbet! It does harden after a while in the freezer, but leaving it out for a few minutes restores its softness. I made mine with only 1/4 cup sugar as the strawberries were perfectly ripe and I don't like terribly sweet. Yum!
Delicious! I doubled the amount of strawberries and it turned out fantastic. It was so tasty, we kept sneaking bites while it was freezing...
I served this to a dinner party, and was told by people that this was the best sorbet they had ever had! excellent, & easy to boot! note: I didnt use the food processor- I used frozen strawberrys, heated them up, added sugar, & used a pastry blender to mash them up before adding other stuff. awesome!
This was fabulous in taste and consistency. You must vary the amount of lemon juice to the sweetness of your berries or fruit. Less sweet berries will require less lemon juice, and I would only use 1.5 Tbsp max, but that is my preference. It does need some, no matter what. Also, you will find that substituting 2 Tbsp of the sugar with 2 Tbsp corn syrup will produce an even silkier texture. And dressing each serving with a small amount of chiffonaded fresh basil not only adds color, but a nice flavor complement as well. Thank you, Dana, for a terrific recipe I will use again and again!
