Sweet and Silky Strawberry Sorbet


This sweet, soft strawberry sorbet rivals any brand in the grocery store. Unable to find the perfect recipe, I made 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. It's dually great because it can be made in an ice cream machine or your regular freezer.

  • 1 pound ripe strawberries, hulled and chopped

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cold water

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Place berries in the bowl of a food processor and purée until smooth. Pour mixture into a large saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and salt; stir until dissolved and bring to a simmer.

  2. Whisk together cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl; stir into simmering berry mixture. Remove the saucepan from heat, stir in lemon juice, and allow to cool slightly. Refrigerate berry mixture until cold, about 2 hours.

  3. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

To Make Sorbet in the Freezer:

Pour berry mixture into a shallow dish and place in the freezer. Stir every 30 to 60 minutes with a fork until sorbet reaches desired consistency.
