“This tart, refreshing sorbet makes an elegant end to a summer meal. Always smell peaches before you buy them to make sure they're sweet and ready to eat.”


    • 1½ cups water
    • ⅔ cup sugar
    • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
    • 1 pound fresh peaches or nectarines, halved and pitted
    • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
    • 6 tablespoons lime juice
    • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 1 Stir water, sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add peaches (or nectarines); bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 2 Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add lime zest, juice and salt; blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until cold, 4 hours or overnight.
  • 3 Freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions. (Alternatively, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Unmold cubes, place half in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process, scraping the sides as necessary, until fairly smooth but still icy. Repeat with the remaining cubes.)
  • Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in a resealable plastic container for up to 1 week.
