seasonal goodness

farmer's markets, with all of their ripe summer fruits and vegetables, are beyond inspiring and DELICIOUS this time of the year.  today did not let me down.  i picked up some amazing organic peaches, apricots and strawberries.  there's something to be said for eating seasonal and local.

with the heat also upon us, i wanted to make something cool and easy.  strawberry sorbet it was!

Organic Strawberry Honey Sorbet

2 pints ripe, organic strawberries
1 organic meyer lemon
1/2 c. honey
2 T. vodka

-cut green stems off of all strawberries and add to blender with lemon and vodka
-blend until strawberries are completely pureed
-add honey and blend for another 30 seconds
-pour mixture into an ice cream maker and follow manufacture's instructions
(i love my cuisinart ice cream maker not only for it's affordability but it's ease in use and cleanup)

*makes about 4 cups sorbet*
