Fresh Peach Sorbet
Source: The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
2 1/2 pounds of ripe peaches

1 cup minus 1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon vodka or peach liqueur


In a food processor, pulse together ripe peaches (peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped), sugar, and a pinch of salt until combined, about 15 pulses.

With the machine running, pour in water, fresh lemon juice and vodka or peach liqueur through the feeding tube and continue to process until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute.

Strain the mixture into a large bowl and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 1 hour.

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the sorbet to an airtight container and press plastic wrap against the surface. Cover the container and freeze the sorbet until firm, about 3 hours. Makes about 1 1/2 pints.

Note: The alcohol is important. It keeps the sorbet smooth and ice-free, as well as allowing you to use less sugar.
