Nectarine Sorbet – What we eat Wednesdays

Nectarine Sorbet ( or what happens when my nectarines get too ripe )

I love it when summer fruit is in season so when my local Supermarket had a special offer on Nectarines I was delighted and brought a few.
But before I could demolish them single-handedly, they started to get really ripe and I knew if I left them another day that they would start to turn so I decided sorbet was the way to go.

Over-ripe nectarine ideas


  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar
  • 1/2 water
  • 4 ripe nectarines 
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • If you want it very soft you can add a teaspoon of any form of alcohol ( I didn’t add any ) 
nectarine and lemon

The How to

1. Place the sugar and water into a pot and heat to boiling and then reduce to simmer until the sugar dissolves, to make a simple syrup. Once done – remove the syrup and allow to cool.
2. Peel the nectarine ( you don’t have to if you don’t want to ) and chop them small. Place them in a blender with the lemon juice and alcohol,if you add it.
3. Stir the blended nectarines into the cooled syrup and mix well, leave covered until able to place in a fridge, chill for an hour.
4. Place in a freezer proof container and freeze until hardened. I left mine over night.

I loved every mouthful of this it was soft and so refreshing and perfect after my Beef Dopiaza to cool you down. Hope you try it 🙂
