Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  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.)

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in a resealable plastic container for up to 1 week.
