Organic Apple Sorbet
Here is a fast and easy dessert recipe that makes good use of the tart-sweet flavor of Braeburn apples:
1 cup organic apple juice (Martinelli’s or similar brand)
1 cup Turbinado sugar
4 to 5 small to medium organic Braeburn apples
2 organic limes, juiced
Mix the sugar and apple juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture forms a syrup. Remove from the heat and let the syrup stand until it is cool, 20 to 30 minutes depending on your room temperature.
While you are waiting for the syrup to cool, prepare the apples. Wash carefully, and then take out the core. Leave the peels on for their nutritional value. Chop the apples into cubes. Place the apple cubes, syrup, and lime juice into a blender. Blend thoroughly until completely smooth. Add to your ice cream maker and let it run until the sorbet is the consistency you like. If you do not have an electric ice cream maker, it is possible to simple freeze the mixture in a container, stirring every 30 minutes or so until it reaches the thickness of sorbet.
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
