Sunday Slow Scoopers~ Sorbet

This week the Sunday Slow Scoopers are scooping a little sorbet, Green Apple Sorbet from 'The Perfect Scoop'. When I saw this I was excited. I envisioned a green apple gelato I had in Rome, bright green in color and tasting like a green apple martini.
I was a little disappointed. It is definitely appley, and very refreshing... but lacks that pretty green color. Next time I am adding a little food coloring! It couldn't be any easier to make, and is so light and refreshing.

Green Apple and Sparkling Cider Sorbet
4 Granny Smith apples
2 cups sparkling apple cider
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp lemon juice (to taste)
Quarter apples and remove seeds, cut into chunks. Combine apple cider, sugar, and water and bring to a boil. Add the apples and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow to steep while it returns to room temperature.
Press the liquid and apples through a strainer to extract the pulp and liquid, discard the peels. Add lemon juice to taste (I didn't need any as my apples were really tart). Chill.
Freeze according to your ice cream makers directions.I missed the pretty green color, so used a shell of that crunchy green apple for my serving bowl. I think they turned out pretty!

Y'all enjoy!

OMG - that looks and sounds so yummy. I have a migraine and something light like sorbet sounds like heaven. I love that you used the apples as the bowl - great shot.

Very, very pretty Sandi. Sounds wonderful!

I actually think it looks better served in the apple in the natural color. Very very pretty. Wish I had some right now though!

Hugs!

That looks so good (refreshing and light) I'm drooling. The use of the apple is perfect and definitely pretty. Sometimes I make pumpkin soup and serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin. Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad you enjoyed the music. ;o)

Patsy said...

Sounds so very refreshing, I could use some right now. :) I'm also all about presentation and putting servings in the green apple shells was a perfect idea! That Rocks.
