Our Annual Iron Chef Throwdown Challenge
And the winner is….. Dani’s Lemon Sorbet!!!!!
Sorry for the bad photo quality, but here it is. The end of my year as reigning champion and keeper of the trophy. Sigh. Alas, I concede defeat to my little sister. Her sorbet was simple and delicious. A huge hit and a taste of summer. I still managed to pull in some votes for my lemon mascarpone though, and Mom got a couple votes for her Paula Deen lemon cake. But the bragging rights for the next year are all Dani’s. Congrats, Dan. And I mean it, even though it pains me to lose the trophy. Just make sure it’s nice and shiny when it comes back next year.
Dani’s Winning Recipe: Lemon Sorbet
2 cups water
1 cup to 1 1/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (5-6 lemons)
2 tsp. lemon zest
Boil water and sugar to make a syrup. Let cool.
Once cool, add zest and lemon juice.
Pour into ice cream maker. Freeze for 40 minutes.
If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can freeze the sorbet in your freezer, stirring occasionally.
