Strawberry, Fresh Mint and Candied Ginger Sorbet
Yield: about 3 cups
The sweetness of fresh, ripe strawberries is perfectly balanced by cool mint and spicy ginger.
Place strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and wine in a food processor; puree well. Taste mixture and adjust flavors: if it is too tart, add a little sugar; if it is too sweet, add a little lemon juice.
Place mixture in a shallow casserole dish and freeze until almost firm, but still a little slushy. Transfer to a food processor, add ginger and mint and blend until smooth. Place back in the casserole dish and freeze until almost firm once more. Give it another go-round in the food processor and then freeze until firm.
Serve garnished with sprigs of mint, a few strips of candied ginger and a small slice of juicy lemon.
