Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 1 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Put 300 g strawberries into a blender goblet. There is no need to remove the green tops.

Stage 2 - 2 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Blend thoroughly.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Add 200 g Sugar syrup and the juice of ½ lemon.

Stage 4 - 10 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Transfer the mixture into an ice-cream maker and leave it to churn...

Stage 5
Strawberry sorbet
...until the purée begins to thicken a little.

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Beat 1 egg white until light and fluffy.

Stage 7 - 1 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Add this to the mixture while churning.

Stage 8 - 10 min.
Strawberry sorbet
Leave to churn until the sorbet texture is smooth and creamy.
You will see how the trick of incorporating a beaten egg white lightens the sorbet in both senses: not only in texture, but also in colour, as it changes from red to pink. This does not affect the flavour, and the lighter sorbet will also keep without turning hard. Professional makers inject air into their ice creams to achieve the same effect.
Several days in the freezer.
Home made.
