If you don't like the seeds, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve. Put the liquid into the ice cream maker or alternatively mix well with a fork in the freezer every 30 minutes (approx. 4 hours). With the latter variant, the ice cream can be briefly put into the blender again before serving.

If the ice cream has been in the freezer longer, it will become very hard. Then let it thaw in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving.

Interesting facts about strawberries

There is nothing like the taste of fresh strawberries. Therefore, you should buy regionally if possible or pick the berries yourself in a strawberry field. In addition, organic quality is very important for berries, because the whole fruit is eaten and the pesticides are particularly concentrated on the surface.

The numerous vitamins and secondary plant substances contained in strawberries suffer from long transport times. One should therefore prefer strawberries from the local region.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Is the absence of the other ingredients (inulin, gum stabilizers) you mention elsewhere to make this more accessible or you don't consider necessary?

    1. Dear Sam,

      Thank you for bringing up such a pertinent question. This particular recipe holds a special place as one of the originals in my collection, and admittedly, it's due for an update which I have yet to publish.

      With sorbet, the use of other ingredients is not quite as critical as with dairy ice cream. That being said, incorporating elements like inulin and guar gum can indeed elevate the texture of sorbet significantly.

      Should you be inclined to experiment on your own, I encourage you to use the sorbet base which pairs well with strawberries. It can also serve as a foundational guide to inspire and develop your own recipe.
