A couple of years ago I went to an adorable chocolate and wine bar called Chocolate & Vines. (If you are ever in Rochester and looking for a nice place for a date – go there!) I ordered peach sorbet and it was served in a hollowed out, frozen peach and it was delicious! Ever since then I randomly remember that I need to try to make it at home and I finally did! It’s just as tasty as I remember and way easier to make than I had anticipated.
Ingredients: (for 3-5 Servings)
4 ripe peaches
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Peel and dice the peaches while you let this cool for a bit. Add the peaches, lemon juice, and sugar water to a food processor and process until smooth. Add the mixture to an ice cream maker and set it to stir for 10 minutes (this will vary based on what time of ice cream maker you have – read the instructions specific to yours). Then transfer sorbet to a freezer container, cover and put in freezer until mostly firm.
For the peach shell: Use a knife to cut down through the top of the peach and around the pit inside. Pull out the pit and use a spoon to scrape out some of the peach so there is room for the sorbet. I put some lemon juice on the inside of the peach to keep it from browning and then popped it in a freezer bag and into the freezer until ready to serve the sorbet.
