Berry Berry Sorbet + White Chocolate Mushrooms

by Megan on April 29, 2011

Sometimes I have extra berries, gettin’ all up in my business. Sometimes I wear outfits that match my sorbet.

Sometimes I take photos of frozen goodness at lunch. Sometimes white chocolate tastes best with berries. Sometimes white chocolate tastes best as a mushroom. Sometimes Elliot’s foot is in the top right corner of a photo of blended berries.

I’m just trying to say that it’s always a good idea to blend berries with sugar and then freeze it. Just like it’s always a good idea to have a beer after work, walk your pup after dinner, and eat sorbet while watching crime shows or Bill Murray movies.

Oh, and sharing is good idea. Here you can have this one! I just ate one bite of it.

Berry Berry Sorbet
Recipe adapted from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb berries (I used strawberries, raspberries, blueberries & blackberries)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • squeeze of half of a lemon (about 1 t)
  • pinch of salt
  • white chocolate anythings, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Slice the strawberries and toss with other berries and sugar in a medium bowl, stirring until the sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and let stand for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every so often.
  2. Purée the berries and their liquid in a blender with lemon juice and salt until smooth. Press the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds.
  3. Chill mixture for a couple hours and then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Top with white chocolate to serve.

Wishing I had an ice cream maker now! I’ll be adding it to my list of kitchen gadget wants (a kitchen aid is still top. But only if it comes in pistachio!)
