Preparation time 20mins


Step 1

In a medium pot, combine honey and water – heat just until combined and remove from heat.

Meanwhile, heat balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat. Let simmer until reduced by half. Stir into honey simple syrup. Set aside.

In a food processor or blender purée strawberries and lemon until smooth. You may have to work in batches. Pour into a large bowl and stir in balsamic honey simple syrup mixture.

Place in fridge 2-3 hours until thoroughly chilled.

Pour into your ice cream maker's canister and prepare per its instructions.

For example, I filled the canister no higher than the “fill line”, placed the cover firmly over the canister, and placed the canister into the center of the bucket. After assembling the motor over the canister, I insert the dasher/mixer shaft in the center and lock the motor.

I let the motor run 2 minutes before adding ice and salt to the bucket. When ready, I add 2 inches of ice to the bottom of the bucket and uniformly sprinkle ½ cup rock salt over the ice. I repeat these ice/salt layers until the canister is covered.

Let the sorbet mixture churn for 20-40 minutes until the motor slows or stops. Unplug the motor, remove any salt/ice from the cover before removing. Take out the dasher and scrape with a spatula and scrape into freezer safe storage containers. I use Mason jars. And lots of them!

This recipe will yield about 8 pints of sorbet.

Remove stored sorbet from freezer at least 10 minutes before serving, letting it sit at room temperature. Serve as-is or with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

Keeps well for two weeks, any longer than that will reduce freshness and flavor.
