How To Make Sorbet

Sorbet, not to be confused by the American dessert “sherbet” which contains dairy, is a frozen dessert made with sweetened water and flavored with fruit purée, wine, and/or liqueur. Once your purée mixture is simmered and cooled, you can begin blending to make it easier to strain. In this online baking lesson, Chef Susie uses an immersion blender for this process then pours the blended purée into a strainer. Stir your mixture until most of the juice is free of seeds, and then mix the remaining purée at a medium speed for about 20 minutes. Afterwards, freeze the sorbet until it has an ice-cream like texture and serve for a fresh, light dessert. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
