Apricot Sorbet
  1. Purchase 1 ½-2 pounds of apricots. Cut up apricots and place in bowl of food processor, pulse to puree then press through fine sieve resulting in 2 cups.
  2. Add 2 cups boiling water to two green tea bags and 1 raspberry tea bag and let steep for 15 minutes. Cool and add sugar to taste or Xylitol to sweeten. Make sure sugar is thoroughly dissolved
  3. Add tea mixture and almond extract to apricots and stir to blend.
Mixed Berry Sorbet
  1. Place berries, wine in small saucepan, bring to a low boil and then lower heat to simmer. Cook for 15 minutes to reduce liquids.Taste for sweetness and add sugar a little at a time until you like it, stirring to dissolve completely. Remember the flavors are concentrated. Remove from pan and run fruit mixture through fine sieve.
  2. Chill fruit mixtures for at least 4 hour or overnight before placing in your ice cream freezer for best results.
  1. Freeze or prepare ice cream maker. Freeze sorbets in two batch and review manufacturer's instructions for non-dairy ingredients until hardened (I like to think of it as a thick slushy) pour into freezer-proof container.
  2. Pour the chilled mixed berry liquid evenly over the apricot mixture. Cover with clear plastic wrap directly on surface freeze until hardened. (Or chill in separate containers if you want, I liked the berry swirl mixed in with the apricot myself.)
If making the berry sorbet you can substitute frozen mixed berries that are available in the freezer case at the grocery store year round and berry juice instead of wine. Xylitol is a natural alcohol and is found in many fruits and vegetables. Most commercially processed xylitol is produced from birch bark and is often found as a sugar replacement for those with diabetes. More info from MedMD http://bit.ly/133jTW2
