What makes this recipe "quick" is that you get to accomplish the prep all at once, it still takes time to freeze the result. There is no need to chill the base in the refrigerator for several hours before putting it in the ice cream maker because it uses frozen strawberries and it starts out pretty darn cold.

I made this today to break in my new ice cream maker, and give my girlfriend a nice surprise when she got home. The recipe can easily be cut in half for one of those small, counter top ice cream makers.

Servings:
About 3 quarts
Preparation Time:
20 minutes prep, 4 hours freezing
Tools
  • ice cream maker
  • sauce pan
  • food processor

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 quarts frozen, homegrown strawberries. If you have to buy them, try and get local strawberries picked fully ripe and freeze them yourself.
  • 1/2 cup lime juice.
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (only if you have organic limes)
Cooking Instructions
  1. Make a syrup by simmering the sugar and salt in the water until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool
  2. Puree the strawberries in batches in your food processor. Add a portion of the syrup, lime juice and zest to each batch.
  3. Pour the base into your ice cream maker and follow the directions.
  4. Move into an airtight container and put it in the freezer to firm up for a few hours
Notes
If you don't like the seeds in your sorbet, you can push the base through a fin mesh strainer before putting it in the ice cream maker.
