Rosy Strawberry Sorbet
This juicy strawberry sorbet isn't merely rose-colored. It also contains rosewater, which combines so beautifully with strawberries that its flavor seems like an extension of the fruit. Neither heavy nor perfume-y, it gives the sorbet a delicate, aromatic sweetness.
Rosewater is available at gourmet, Middle Eastern, and Indian markets. If you prefer, you can make the sorbet without the rosewater. But we recommend using it, since it really does add a special flavor. To save time, you can quickly cool the sugar syrup in step 1 by setting the pot in an ice bath and stirring until the mixture reaches room temperature, 2 to 5 minutes. Likewise, you can bypass chilling the mixture in the refrigerator in step 3 by setting the bowl in an ice bath and stirring until well chilled, about 12 minutes.
