Summer Strawberry Sorbet

August 1, 2018

Author Notes: Now this is a beach ball in a bowl. Equally tart and sweet, the intense taste of strawberry evokes a primal response to the warmest of seasons. Summer's here!

A nod to David Lebovitz for the inclusion of corn syrup. It is necessary to prevent your sorbet from becoming a big, strawberry ice cube.
