A simply delicious and low-fat dessert, this Pear-Ginger Sorbet turns a can of pears into a perfectly refreshing after-dinner treat.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 (15 ounce) can pears in heavy syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon minced gingerroot
Place unopened can of fruit in freezer until solid (approx. 24 hours; can may bulge slightly). Submerge unopened frozen can in very hot tap water for 1 minute.
Open can and pour any thawed syrup into food processor bowl. Remove frozen fruit from can; carefully cut into 8 chunks.
Place frozen fruit chunks into food processor; add flavoring. Process until smooth, scraping blade as needed.
Serve immediately or spoon into freezer container and freeze until ready to serve.
Not recommended for blenders or mini food processors. To double recipe, process in two separate batches. For firmer sorbet, freeze 1 to 2 hours prior to serving.
