This sherbet is refreshingly light, a great confectionery side with cookies, pies or cakes. Very ripe pears soft to the touch or Trader Joes pear halves in a jar of white grape juice, my favorite to use, work beautifully for this recipe. It is very easy to put together, most all the ingredients are pureed in a blender. I was originally inspired by an older Food52’s pear holiday theme; and I credit this frozen treat’s success to my intuition, The Ultimate Ice Cream Book and online Food52 recipes I read! —lapadia
Instructions are for using a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker, the freezer bowl must be chilled overnight; otherwise, follow your ice cream maker's instructions.
3 cups very ripe juicy pears - peeled and cubed
OR... a jar of Trader Joe's pear halves in white grape juice, my favorite to use.
