Pomegranate Sorbetto



Remember all that pomegranate juice I made awhile back?  I have the juice frozen and took out a liter and made this amazing sorbetto.  It is so rich and flavourful that only a little scoop satisfies the craving.  Pomegranate has a sweet tart puckery quality about it that makes it ideal as a palate cleanser.

Pomegranate Sorbetto

Makes about one quart

    4 cups freshly-squeezed pomegranate juice (from 7 large pomegranates)
    1+1/4 cups (250g) sugar
    2-3 tbsp lemon juice
    2 tbsp Grenadine (pomegranate syrup, optional)

    Juice the pomegranates by hand.  See my link above for Pomegranate juice for instructions.
    Stir 2 cups of pomegranate juice and sugar over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Take off heat and combine with the remaining pomegranate juice. Add 2 tbsp lemon juice and Grenadine (if you’re using) and stir to combine. Taste and see if the mixture needs more acidity. Depending on the sweetness of your pomegranates, you might want to add another tablespoon of lemon juice.
    Chill the mixture thoroughly then freeze it in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
