(canned) Peach Sorbet

Unfortunately, Mr. Yellow Chick borrowed my camera and hasn't returned it... he's asleep so I can't ask him where it is. I'll take a picture tomorrow. :)

~Ingredients~

2 - 15 ounce cans peaches in pear juice
1/4 cup sugar
Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
Pinch of Salt

~Directions~

1. Puree peaches in a blender - don't overdo it, you don't want to whip a lot of air into it, and having some "peach bits" in the sorbet is just fine.
2. Add other ingredients and pulse to combine.
3. Process in ice cream machine until a soft-serve consistency is reached.
4. Transfer to a container and freeze until firm.

~Conclusion~

I probably should have chilled the mixture - I completely forgot until it was already processing and I realized if it had been chilled it probably would have set up to a firmer soft serve.

~Reviews~

Yellow Chick: Simple, easy, tasty, and refreshing. :) This would be very nice on a hot summer day.
Mr. Yellow Chick: He's asleep, so I'll have to ask him tomorrow...

That is pretty neat. Did you think this up all by yourself?

Yes, I thought it up all by myself. :) Unfortunately because I didn't get to process it long enough - and because I didn't have anything in it to keep it from crystalizing, it became too solid to scoop and that's why I haven't taken a picture of it. It was tasty when it was fresh, but then it just hardened up too much. Oh well, lessons learned.

Maybe you could make it into a smoothie in the blender with some extra milk?
