Ingredients for Strawberry Sherbet Recipe

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 beaten pasteurized egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Clean and hull strawberries, and then place in a food processor or blender and purée until smooth.
  2. If you do not want the seeds, strain the purée through a mesh strainer.
  3. Pour the purée into a large glass bowl.
  4. Stir in the water, egg white, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla extract. If you prefer a sweeter sherbet, add more sugar to your taste.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 2 hours or until well chilled.
  6. Pour the chilled mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to your machine's directions.
  7. Keep frozen until ready to serve.
  8. For a special touch, serve the strawberry sherbet in cantaloupe halves and garnish with fresh strawberry slices.

Note: Sherbets made with the whole egg nearly resemble ice cream in consistency than when the beaten egg white is used.
