Peach lime sorbet

There are some things in life that you must accept without questioning. I've learned that recipe suggestions from my friend Kathleen fall into this category.

She recently suggested that I try this recipe for peach lime sorbet from Eating Well. She said it was awesome. That girl don't lie.

So grab yourself some peaches and limes, and make this as soon as humanly possible. You won't be sorry.

Peach lime sorbet


1 1/2 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 pound fresh peaches or nectarines, halved and pitted
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
6 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Stir water, sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add peaches and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.

2. Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add lime zest, juice, and salt, and blend until smooth. Pour into large bowl and refrigerate until 4 hours or overnight.

3. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker. Or, pour into ice cube trays and freeze until solid. Remove from trays, and place in a food processor with a chopping blade. Process until smooth but still icy.

Note: I doubled this recipe but only put in 9 tablespoons of lime juice and it was really lime-y, so you may want to add the lime juice a little at a time until it suits your taste.
