Peach Sorbet

Sunday, July 19, 2009

If Heaven exists, I'd like to believe that a bowl of this stuff will be waiting for me when I get there.

I'm not even kidding.

About a week ago, I was driving around in my car in 80+ degree heat, and I was thinking about sorbets. (Yes, it's a hard life I live, driving around thinking about sweet treats!) I was trying to decide what flavor I wanted to make next.

Suddenly, it hit me--peaches. And at that moment, I wanted peach sorbet so badly that I almost drove straight to the store to pick up some peaches. But I held off, and waited until I had some time to poke around on the internet to find a proven peach sorbet recipe.

Well, this is it. The peach sorbet recipe. Sure, I haven't tried any others, but I'll tell you what--I don't want to. This is my most favorite frozen treat I have had in a loooong time. When I finished my bowl tonight, all I wanted was more.

Thankfully, I do have some willpower.

The thing is... technically, it's not even peach season here yet. We'll start to have nice local peaches at the end of August/early September. What does that mean? Well, it means that we'll have many more opportunities to make peach sorbet.

Hallelujah.
