Today I’m sharing a recipe for a grapefruit and lime sorbet. I really enjoy the combo of the freshness of grapefruit, and the perkiness of the lime. The lime balances a little of the bitterness of the grapefruit (or whatever that flavor is that you generally get as an aftertaste with grapefruit).
I’m not joking.
No kidding here.
No foolin’ either.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started: sugar, water, grapefruits and limes.
Begin by pouring the sugar and water into a sauce pan.
While the sugar/water (it’s a simple syrup really) is cooling, zest and juice the grapefruits and lime(s).
I combined mine right in the ice cream freezer because I wasn’t thinking. It worked just fine but you may want to mix them together in a separate bowl first. Freeze according to ice cream maker directions.
When frozen, serve immediately, or transfer to a freezer safe container and place in freezer until ready to serve.
- 1 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons of grapefruit zest
- 1 teaspoon of lime zest
- 1 1/2 cups of grapefruit and lime juice (juice from about 2 grapefruits and 3 limes)
- Begin by pouring the sugar and water into a sauce pan, bring to a simmer for just a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.
- While the sugar/water (it's a simple syrup really) is cooling, zest the grapefruits and lime(s).
- Next juice the grapefruit and limes.
- When the sugar/water has cooled (let it cool completely), combine it with the zest and juice, and pour mixture into an ice cream freezer. Freeze according to ice cream maker directions.
- When frozen, serve immediately, or transfer to a freezer safe container and place in freezer until ready to serve.
