Pineapple and Guava Sorbet
With the temperatures climbing, it's time to once again dust off the ice cream machine, and get cracking on those frozen treats that make a hot day bearable.
This time I chose to go for a tropical themed sorbet because I love how it evokes images of being in the tropics, by the beach...and also because my local green grocer had a special on guava juice. I simply mixed pineapple one part pineapple juice to two parts guava juice, and dissolved 25% by volume of sugar - the magic sorbet ratio provided for by David Lebovitz.
To put it simply:
1 cup pineapple juice
2 cups guava juice
3/4 cups sugar
Simply dissolve the sugar into the juices - I heated the juice up gently - and then chill and freeze according to your ice cream machine's manufacturer's instructions.
Et Voila! A frozen tropical treat to sooth away the blistering heat at your next Christmas party.
