Strawberry-Black Pepper Sorbet

This luscious sorbet has just a hint of black pepper to contrast and accentuate the sweetness of ripe summer strawberries. To crush the peppercorns, use a mortar and pestle, the side of a chef's knife, or the bottom of a heavy pan or skillet.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely crushed black peppercorns
  • 6 cups sliced strawberries (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preparation

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Stir in peppercorns; let stand 20 minutes.

Drain sugar syrup through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Place half of sugar syrup, half of sliced strawberries, and fresh lemon juice in a blender, and process until smooth. Pour pureed mixture into a bowl. Repeat the procedure with remaining sugar syrup and sliced strawberries.

Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon sorbet into a freezer-safe container; cover and freeze 4 hours or until firm.
