There sits a very large, very productive apricot tree in my yard.
After countless jars of jam put away, a heavenly apricot chipotle pork roast,
neighbors given bags full, there was still enough to make about 3 pints of sorbet!
Thanks to some online inspiration I came across this recipe
and adapted it just a little by adding some fresh lemon juice
and some thyme to the boiling mixture.
Straining it through a fine mesh sieve before going in the ice cream maker
ensures a wonderful, almost granita like texture.
It's a wonderful light finish to a Summer meal.
It's fruit forward with just the right hint of sweetness.
The thyme flavor is very subtle.
I could have probably almost added a little more, but this way you get an herb essence,
without it being overpowering.
It was also a great reason to use my new vintage melamine bowls from this great etsy shop.
