Ingredients

  • 6 large, ripe peaches
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

Recipe

Peel and slice peaches. (If you prefer more texture, leave the skin on.) Freeze until firm, preferably overnight. 

Put the water in a saucepan. Add sugar and then bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring until all the sugar has dissolved into a simple syrup. Refrigerate until cold. (About an hour.)

In a large blender, add simple syrup, lemon juice, salt and peaches. (If you have a smaller blender, you may have to divide into two batches.) Blend until smooth, but stop before the sorbet melts. (Feel free to add a couple of ice cubes if it gets too soft.) 

Eat immediately soft-serve-style, or freeze in a loaf pan for up to 3 days.

Variations:

  • Add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract for Peaches and Cream Sorbet.
  • Add 1-2 tbsp freshly ground ginger for refreshing Gingered Peach Sorbet.
  • Skip the simple syrup and add the sugar and 3/4 cup bourbon (in place of water) straight to the blender for an adults-only Southern Peach Sorbet.
