Lavender Sorbet


Lavender Sorbet


A delicious, cool treat for a hot summer day!

1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 tablespoon organic lavender flowers
2 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons white grape juice

In a saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water and heat until the sugar dissolved. Add the lavender flowers and stir gently. Continue heating until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for five minutes. Remove from heat, cover saucepan, and allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes.

Place a fine strainer over a large bowl an pour the syrup mixture through it, straining out the lavender flowers. Add the lemon juice and white grape juice to the syrup. Stir until completely blended.

If you have an ice cream maker, process according to manufacturer's instructions. To use a freezer, pour the mixture into a container, cover, and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it with a fork and refreeze. When frozen, place in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.

Serves 8 - 10
