Strawberry beer sorbet recipe
- 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups beer (preferably pale ale with notes of citrus)
- In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the strawberries and the sugar. With a potato masher, smash and stir the strawberries until well macerated and combined with the sugar. Allow the mixture to come to a boil, stirring and mashing until all the strawberries have broken down, about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat, stir in the beer and allow to cool. (If desired, strain mixture to remove seeds.)
- Place the strawberry mixture in the refrigerator until completely cool, about 2 hours.
- Pour mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and run according to manufacturer’s directions. When done, place in the freezer to finish setting up.
