Makes about 1 quart

Notes: In the freezer, sorbet gets very hard. To serve, thaw partially, break into chunks, and beat to a slush with a mixer or a food processor.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix nectarine slices with 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Whirl, a portion at a time, in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Return purée to bowl.

Step 2

Add Gewürztraminer, sugar to taste, and more lemon juice if desired. Nest bowl in ice water and stir often until mixture is cold, 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 3

Pour chilled purée into an ice cream maker (1-qt. or larger capacity). Freeze according to manufacturer's directions until sorbet is firm enough to scoop, dasher is hard to turn, or machine stops.

Step 4

Serve, or freeze airtight (see below)

Step 5

Firming and Storing Ice Cream:

Step 6

To get frozen desserts hard enough to scoop onto a cone, or to store them, transfer when frozen to an airtight container and put in the freezer at least 3 hours or up to 1 week.

Step 7

If freezing with ice and salt, leave the frozen dessert in ice and salt up to 3 hours.

Step 8

For best flavor and texture, serve frozen desserts within a week. On longer standing, icy crystals develop.

Step 9

Nutritional analysis per 1/2 cup.
