A couple months ago I harvested our bluebell grapes and made grape juice. Too busy to do anything with the juice at the time, I froze it - until now. Time to make grape sorbet! Begin by thawing the grape juice.
* 3 cups homemade grape juice
* 1/4 cup superfine sugar
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice
* 2 tablespoons orange cointreau or other orange liquor
Add grape juice, sugar and lemon juice to a bowl and mix well to incorporate the sugar. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and run for about 1/2 hour or until mixture thickens. Add cointreau* and continue to mix until the cointreau is well incorporated into the sorbet. Put all into a storage container and place in your freezer.
Next time you're over, ask me for a taste!
* Alcohol inhibits the freezing process. To add alcohol to a recipe, do so in the last minutes of freezing.
