How To Make Strawberry And Elderflower Sorbet:
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Freezing time: 6-8 hours
What You Need:
300ml/ ½ pt water
150g/5oz caster sugar
500g/1lb 2 oz strawberries, hulled
3 tablespoons elderflower cordial, undiluted
Juice ½ lemon
1 egg white
Tiny pansy or herb flowers to decorate
Strawberry and Elderflower Sorbet Method:
1.) Firstly, pour the water into a saucepan, add the sugar and heat gently, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
2.) Increase the heat and boil for one minute then leave to cool.
3.) Meanwhile puree the strawberries in a food processor or liquidiser until smooth.
4.) Pour into a sieve set over a bowl and press the puree through with the back of a spoon then discard the seeds.
5.) Stir the puree into the sugar syrup then mix in the undiluted elderflower cordial and lemon juice.
6.) Pour into a non-stick roasting tin or shallow plastic container – the larger the container the shallower the syrup will be and the quicker it will freeze.
7.) Place in the freezer for four hours or until semi-frozen.
8.) Lightly beat the egg white in a small bowl until frothy.
9.) Mash the semi frozen sorbet with the fork to break up the ice crystals then beat in the egg white.
10.) Spoon into a plastic container.
11.) Cover and seal, freeze until firm enough to scoop.
12.) Scoop sorbet into teacups, decorate with flowers and serve with soft amaretti or small shortbread biscuits.
If you have an ice cream machine, churn the strawberry syrup in the pre-cooled machine for about 20 minutes, until semi frozen and then gradually pour the lightly beaten egg white through the feeder tube at the top.
Continue churning until the sorbet is thick enough to scoop then serve immediately or transfer to a plastic container and store in the freezer until required.
