Summer Fruit Sorbet
February, 2001

Serves 4 / This refreshing sorbet made from frozen summer fruits is a real treat. Easy to make and even easier to eat, it will satisfy any sweet tooth.

4 cups frozen mixed summer fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries and strawberries
1 large orange peel, grated
Juice from 2 large oranges
1 tablespoon raspberry jam*
Mint sprigs, to garnish
Fresh berry fruits, to serve

1. Place food-processor bowl in refrigerator for a few minutes to make sure it's very cold. Place first few ingredients in cooled food-processor bowl and process until smooth. This may take a while. Continually scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse again.

2. Scoop out sorbet and serve immediately, decorated with mint and fresh fruits.

*Star ingredient: You can use ordinary jam for this recipe, rather than the sugar-free kind. The amount of sugar is so small that it will not affect diabetes control. If you choose to replace the mixed frozen fruits with a single fruit, match the jam to the fruit.
