Carrot-Ginger Sorbet

Carrot-Ginger Sorbet

Last Friday I made a Mojito Sorbet, much appreciated by my audience in that sweltering heat. This Friday I’m revisiting an old favorite, Carrot-Ginger Sorbet, which is simple to make as I use ready-made carrot juice purchased from Whole Foods.

I’ve had this Krups ice cream/sorbet maker for at least 15 years now, and it’s held up beautifully, with nary a glitch in the system.

Recipe: Carrot-Ginger Sorbet

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped orange zest, plus juice from orange (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups carrot juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • Mint sprigs and nasturtium blossoms, optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Mash orange zest with 1 teaspoon of the sugar to release the orange oils.
  2. Combine orange and carrot juices. Stir in ginger, orange zest and remaining sugar and let stand until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Stir well and refrigerate until well-chilled, about 2 to 4 hours. (May be made up to 24 hours in advance.)
  3. Pour into an ice cream maker and prepare according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  4. Serve in small bowls, garnished with mint and nasturtium blossoms, if desired. Remaining sorbet may be frozen.

Time to freeze machine canister: 24 hours

Time to allow ingredients to chill: 4 hours

Active Time: 15 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 4-6
