Earl Grey Sorbet
4 bags of earl grey tea
3 cups of water
juice of one lemon
1 cup of pure cane sugar
1 teaspoon of dried mint or 2 mint leaves
Boil 2 1/2 cups of water, add the tea bags to it and let it sit for 7 minutes. Boil 1 cup of water and add the sugar to it to make a syrup. After the tea is cooled, add the lemon and mint to it. Add the sugar syrup once the sugar has dissolved. Now, this is the hard part. You have to put it in a bowl in the freezer and STIR IT every hour to “fluff” it up.
It is definitely easier if you have an ice cream maker, however, I don’t know what you do with one of those since I’m clearly lacking the technology. Anyways, it tastes like tea in sorbet form, WHO KNEW? It’s refreshing as fuck and perfect for summer. And it’s the one of the few things I’ll make that’s non alcoholic.
The churning was totally worth it.
