Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Pear sorbet : Photo of step #1
Peel pears, and put them immediately into cold water with the juice of half a lemon, or a pinch of vitamin C added.

We do that because peeled pears turn brown quickly.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Mix until you obtain a smooth puree.

Put in the fridge, or freezer, in a sealed container if not to be used immediately.

We do that so that the mixture is very cold before putting in the ice cream maker.
