Apple Sorbet

Apple Sorbet

When my friend told me she never had apple sorbet I was speechless for 5 seconds.  And if you don’t know me well let me just clarify: 5 seconds is a very long time!  If you don’t make apple sorbet, what do you do with leftover apples?  You know, when your kids only take two bites out of an apple and say they are done.  Or you had a family trip to an apple orchard and got home with a cartload of apples?  Or when you grab a box of apples at Costco and come home to discover you have plenty left in a pantry? 
I chop them up and freeze them!
I think keeping some frozen apples in a fridge is handy for a couple of reasons.  
1. You brewed some chamomile tea for kids or yourself and it’s burning hot.  Throw some frozen apple chunks in your tea to cool it down fast and to add a little flavor (nothing too strong like with lemon ice cubes I talked about here).
2. You finished dinner and can’t decide if you are full or not.  Don’t go for seconds!  Suck on frozen apples while cleaning the table.  Not only you will save time (you are sucking while cleaning), your waistline will thank you.    
3. Craving ice-cream?  You probably just need something cold.  Open a good book, sit in a comfy chair and set
a bowl of frozen apples by your side.  By the time you are done with the bowl of frozen apples, all thoughts of ice-cream will vanish from your head.
4. Most importantly, if you need some delicious and comforting dessert quickly just turn frozen apple chunks into
apple sorbet.  If you ask me, it’s pretty
divine any time of the day!  (But then
again I do have a peculiar taste and a bag of baby kale can throw me into an ecstasy). 
For us making an apple, sorbet is such a permanent part of our lives I can’t imagine anyone not doing the same.  Besides, it’s the healthiest and yummiest dessert I know. We crave what we eat most often. Why not train our buds to crave healthy things? 
This dessert is impossible to screw up.  Chop, freeze and blend!  Feel free to peel apples before freezing them
but keep in mind that apple skin is full of beneficial nutrients.  If you are not in love with lemon, add less lemon juice, but I think it brings out the apple flavor.  The quantities suggested are our favorite proportions; adjust them to your taste.
