Strawberry Sorbet from Food52

Sensational Strawberry Sorbet is child’s play. It takes fewer minutes (not counting freezing time) than it would take you to go out and buy it from the store. This is a perfect recipe for party leftovers, or for berries that are still really delicious but less-than-perfect looking; and sweetening the sorbet with preserves instead of sugar produces a smoother sorbet with a more complex berry flavor. Serve it plain or paired with a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream or a little whipped cream for contrast.

And the best part is if you forget about in the freezer and it goes solid, run the tines of a fork over it a few dozen times and BOOM, granita.

nevertheless...annoying as hell as it is a super manipulative way to increase site clicks. No one likes being manipulated.
