One word. YUM.

My friend is about to have a baby so we wanted to bring her something special when we came to visit. M and Tomas went out to the store this morning and M picked out all the ingredients for a sorbet.

This recipe makes two pints (our ice-cream maker handles one pint at a time so we had enough for two batches). We brought one pint (ran out of time to make that second batch), and had exactly enough for 7 adults and 3 children to each have a scoop.


  • One cup sugar
  • One Cup water
  • Zest of two oranges and one lime

Boil mixture until it has the consistency of syrup. Set aside until cooled.

Cut two nectarines into sections, then blanch (boil in plain water) for a few minutes. Drain, then purée.

In ice-cream maker combine:

  • 1/2 cup nectartine purée
  • 3/4 cups mango juice
  • 1 cup cooled syrup
  • Dash of vanilla extract

Follow the instructions for your ice-cream maker. This sorbet took about 40 minutes in ours.

Absolutely lovely.
