i had some leftover passion fruit puree sitting in the fridge and since i was getting ready to move across the country i had to think of a way to use it up. thought that since it was summer and it’s going to be so hot out down here in tennessee that sorbet sounded just right! now this sorbet is a bit tart but sweet at the same time. it is so addicting that i couldn’t keep my hands off the ice cream container and just kept spooning this stuff into my mouth. it’s that good and perfect for a hot day to cool off.
now i used frozen passion fruit puree, but if you happen to be able to find fresh passion fruit, then use that! just add it into a food processor and puree it really well and then strain it through a fine mesh sieve.
passion fruit sorbet
makes 1 pint
1/2 cup passion fruit puree
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cup water
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
in a small pot, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. add in the lemon juice and passion fruit puree and let chill in the fridge overnight. following the manufacturer’s instructions of your ice cream machine, turn the base for 20-25 minutes. place the ice cream into a freezer safe container and freeze overnight to firm up.
