 Ingredients List

  • -------------------------------FOR THE SORBET-------------------------------
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1 c Water
  • 2 c Strained fresh orange juice,
  • -from about 2 lb oranges
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 Ripe pineapple, peeled,
  • -cored, coarsely chopped
  • 3 ts Chopped fresh mint leaves


1/2 Ripe pineapple, peeled,
-cored, finely chopped
1/4 c Cointreau (optional)
2 tb Chopped fresh mint leaves

To make the sorbet: Combine the sugar and water ina large saucepan and
bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from
the heat and allow to cool. Meanwhile, combine the orange and lime juices.
Puree the pineapple in a food processor fitted with a steel blade or
blender along with the mint leaves. Use some of the orange juice to
moisten. Combine with the orange-lime juice. Stir the pineapple mixture
into the cooled syrup. Either freeze in an ice cream freezer or freeze in
a covered bowl. When frozen solid, remove from the bowl and spoon into a
food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until fluffy; this
breaks up the ice crystals and results in a smoother texture. To ensure
this very smooth texture, repeat the process one more time after a couple
of hours (this step is optional). Spoon into individual serving dishes,
cover with plastic and then foil, and freeze. Or oil a loaf pan or mold and
line with plastic wrap. Pour in the sorbet mixture, cover tightly with
plastic wrap and then foil, and freeze. Work quickly so that the sorbet
doesn't melt, or ice crystals will form again when it freezes. To make the
garnish and serve: Toss together the chopped pineapple and the Cointreau
if you using it. Add the mint leaves. Set aside or refrigerate until ready
to serve. Twenty minutes before serving, place the sorbet in the
refrigerator to soften. If you froze it in the loaf pan, unmold on a
platter. Cut slices using sharp knife. IF you froze it in individual
molds, unmold into bowls. Serve, topping each serving with the garnish.
Advance preparation: This sorbet will hold for weeks, covered tightly, in
the freezer. The garnish can be made several hours ahead of serving time
and held in a covered bowl in the refrigerator. Calories: 86. Fat: .40 g.
