Ginger Peach Green Tea Sorbet

Girls' Night at the Duncan's was such a treat. Each of us contributed in some way to the night of sushi rolling--I decided to make a Green Tea Sorbet. The recipe could not have been simpler! And the results were smooth, sweet, icy, minty, melt-in-your-mouth good!

What you need:
-3 c. water
-2 Tbls. loose leaf green tea or other green tea flavor of your choosing (I used Ginger Peach), OR 6 tea bags of green tea
-1/2 c. sugar
-2 Tbls. chopped fresh mint

What to do:
-Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan
-Add the tea bags, sugar, and mint
-Turn off the water and allow to steep, stirring occasionally for approximately 6 to 10 min., making sure that the sugar dissolves
-If you used loose leaf tea, strain the liquid to remove leaves. If you used bags, remove them from the liquid
-Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze for about 30 minutes, or until it comes to a smooth, icy consistency
-NOTE: If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can pour the mixture into a 1 gallon freezer bag, place in the freezer, and take out every 20 minutes to squish the mixture around until liquid has frozen

Friend, you really like your sorbet recipes! :) I would be up for this one if we still lived in Texas, but the weather up here is just not hot/humid enough...

Love the new layout of your blog. It complements your new pretty pictures!
