Aw yes a box of peaches, nothing makes me happier.....
That is until you give me this book.... The Ciao Bella Book of Gelato & Sorbetta
And then you make Peach Sorbetta. Too good.
2 1/2 pounds ( 5 large) peaches
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Using the tip of a paring knife, cut a small x into the bottom of the peaches. Immerse the peaches in the boiling water and blanch for about 1 minute to loosen the skins. Remove peaches, immediately put peaches in a bowl filled with ice water, and let them sit until cool enough to handle.. about 1 minute. Peel the peaches using a paring knife, then remove the pit and roughly chop the flesh.
Place the peach flesh and lemon juice in a food processor and puree until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl, pressing down the solids to extract all liquid. discard solids. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
Whick the simple syrup into the peach puree, then pour the mixture into the container of an ice cream machine and churn accordingly to manufacturers instructions.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
In medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Place over medium high heat and bring to a boil, whisking often to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat to meduim low and simmer for 4 minutes, while continuing to whisk until all sugar is dissolved.
