Peach Sorbet

Ripe peaches taste like summer no matter how you eat them. Try them in this delightful, refreshing sorbet!

It is HOT on the East Coast.  For weeks now we’ve seen temperatures in the 90s and in recent days they’ve reached 100 degrees with heat indexes reaching 115!   I’ve found myself reaching repeatedly for the ice cream maker to cool off.  I love ice cream more than anything, but sorbet is so easy.  And this time of year there are so many wonderful options from the farmers market: cherries, raspberries, peaches… while ice cream can involve turning on the stove to make custard, sorbet is as simple as pureeing ingredients and then freezing them in your ice cream machine!

Here’s an easy recipe for peach sorbet.  The liquor is optional; I just happened to have some and thought it might give the sorbet a little something extra, which it did.  I used Poire Williams, which is a fantastic pear brandy, but you could also use an orange liquor such as Grand Marnier or anything that looks complementary.

For most ice cream makers this will make a double batch, so feel free to cut the recipe in half.  I just believe that when it’s hot out there’s no reason to skimp on delicious dessert.  So I make lots of it.

  • You’re right, it is so hot here in NYC.. that the muggy days make me run inside to the AC lol. But I love this peach sorbet recipe. I can’t eat peaces because I’m allergic, but I an imagine you can do this with any fruit and that is what I’m going to try. Great post.

  • It’s been a long cold winter, but I can almost imagine it’s summer looking at this sorbet! I need to try this, it looks so good!
