strawberry mint sorbet

summer sorbet

2 pounds (or cartons) fresh strawberries, rinsed & hulled
1.5 cup sugar or to taste
1 teaspoon lime juice
a pinch of salt
4 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped fine

directions: slice/hull all strawberries and mix in sugar. stir well until the sugar starts to dissolve. cover and let stand in the refrigerator for upto an hour or over night. occasionally stir the strawberries and their liquid; at any point you can add the fresh mint. in a food processor add lime and the pinch of salt and puree until it's a thick liquid. move to a freezer safe container and once it's frozen it's ready to eat!

about the recipe: when life gives you strawberries and mint - make sorbet! my job often has perks and sometimes those perks are getting 2 free cartons of strawberries and 2 free bunches of fresh mint! i immediately knew what i had to do and on my break did a quick google search for strawberry mint sorbet. i came across this recipe and it didn't look to difficult. i quickly devoured this batch and made a much larger batch since - and now i'm all out of mint! perfect for all this blasted heat minnesota keeps shooting our way.
