Though I posted this in reply to an earlier post requesting a recipe for pear sorbet, I thought that some of you might miss it, as it is further down on the list of posts.
Since I was fascinated the first time I tried it, by the ease and tastiness of this "recipe", I thought that I'd share.
Forgive me if this is an obvious technique which most of you already know about, or was already discussed:
In reply to the request, I wrote:
You can make an even easier version, using canned pears (or any other canned fruit you desire - preferably, in heavy syrup.)
Simply freeze the can of fruit, until frozen solid.
Dip frozen can in hot water for about a minute.
Open can, and pour any melted liquid into the bowl of
a food processor. Then remove the whole frozen chunk from the can. Cut it into pieces, and place them in the processor, with any alcohol you desire. I personally just add a little vanilla extract, and sometimes some additional sweetener (sugar, or artificial). Whiz it all in the F.P., until it reaches the desired consistency. From my experience, this doesn't work well in a blender.
Serve immediately, or freeze in a container.
Delicious with almost any canned fruit, pears, apricots, pineapple, lychees....
I got this recipe a while ago, on another list, and it's great.
