Kiwi, Honey & Lemon Sorbet

Kiwi, Honey & Lemon Sorbet
Recipe by Dragon

The hot weather has arrived! To celebrate I'll be making lots of iced treats including ice cream, gelatos and sorbets. I had kiwis in the fridge this weekend so I decided to start there. I added some honey, lemon, a touch of rum and the sorbet turned out perfect. Psst...the secret ingredient is lemon verbena. Enjoy!

Serves: 4

6 kiwis, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 lemon verbena leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
zest of one lemon
Dash of rum

1. Bring water, sugar and honey to a boil to make simple syrup. Remove from heat, stir until sugar and honey are completely dissolved. Add lemon verbena leaves and then let cool. Remove the lemon verbena from the cooled syrup.

2. Puree the kiwis in a food processor. Add the syrup, zest, lemon juice, rum and blitz for 1 addional minute just to combine.

3. Transfer the kiwi mixture to your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions, Let it churn until you get your desired consistency.

4. Transfer the sorbet into a covered container and freeze until you're ready to enjoy it.

Of course! Love the lemon verbena idea. It's brilliant. As is the color of this sorbet... those seeds make it so very fun.
