Frozen Strawberry Sorbet

It's strawberry season and this never fails to please. It keeps forever in the freezer and is a gorgeous color. You can use fresh strawberries, but I like those just as is or in shortcake. As long as you are going to freeze them, you might as well use frozen ones. Plus they are washed, hulled and ready to go.

Ingredients:
16 0z. package frozen strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup orange juice

Tools:
blender or food processor
hand blender (optional)

Place the strawberries, sugar and orange juice in a blender or processor and puree. It helps if the strawberries are a little thawed. Pour into a freezer proof bowl and freeze until crystals form around the edge. If you forget and the whole mixture freezes completely, no problem, just continue with the next step.
Remove from the freezer and mix with the hand blender (or dump it back in the processor and puree again). This breaks up the ice crystals which makes for a smoother sorbet. Freeze again until solid. Serve in cones or dishes or for a really impressive dessert do the following:

Ingredients:
4 lemons
2 egg whites
4 T sugar

Tools:
knife
grapefruit knife
beater
butane torch

Cut a very small slice off the bottom of the lemon so it will stand up. Cut off the top at the widest point so you have a bowl then carve out the lemon pulp with the grapefruit knife. Remove all of the pulp. You should just have the skin and white of the lemon. Fill with frozen strawberry sorbet. Place back in the freezer while you make the meringue.
Make a meringue by beating egg whites until fluffy and very slowly add 2 Tablespoons of sugar per egg white and beat until the meringue forms stiff peaks. Completely cover the sorbet with the meringue. You can serve now or freeze the meringue covered lemons.

Apply heat with the torch until the meringue is light brown. I melted some seedless raspberry jam in the microwave and dribbled it around the plate for garnish. A mint leaf would be nice too.

That's a really great little idea, especially the lemon part. I think the meringue might be a bit too heavy for a summer treat like this though. I'd probably garnish with lemon zest and a few mint leaves to top it off instead.

this is a very exquisite sorbet, and I want to prepare this at home, I am loyalty strawberry fan, so I love anything with strawberry.

This sounds so lovely & refreshing! I'd probably go the lazy route and just serve it with whipped cream instead of meringue though, hehe.

This looks fantastic! I love how they are in lemon bowls, I'm going to have to steal this idea sometime soon, thanks!
