Red wine pear sorbet

Red wine pear sorbet

As it’s getting warmer, I get a hankering for something cool and refreshing for dessert. On one of my favorite cooking shows, Everyday Food by Martha Stewart, they featured a red wine pear sorbet that didn’t require an ice cream machine. Score.

This is very simple, and very good. Pretty much, heat up red wine, pear and sugar. Then, add lemon juice and salt. Freeze over night. Then, puree in food processing machine until smooth (which did take a while). It might sound like pear and red wine are fall or winter ingredients, but with the lovely lightness of the sorbet, this becomes a perfect spring dessert.
