Reviews for Peach Sorbet
"I made this as written the first time, but then substituted peaches for three very large peacharines the second time and it was heavenly either way."
"Excellent recipe. Although I would recommend doubling it up since it tastes so delicious you'll have spoons and bowls fighting you for a share. I put it in my Kitchenaid Ice Cream Maker for 22 minutes. The last 3 minutes I tossed in some small bits of peach that I'd cut up beforehand. I like the different textures: smooth peach sorbet and then biting down on a piece of ripe peach."
"This sound like how you make sherbet. This is a little way How I make sherbet. But I don't make a syrup. I just put all ingredient in a blend and blend unti smooth, freeze for 1 to 2 hours, whip it with a fork then freezn until hard. You may not need to use alot sugar. it depend on how sweet the fruits is."
"Since we don't have GOOD fresh peaches yet, I tried it with both canned and frozen peaches (store bought). The frozen, even with a little extra sugar, wasn't as good as I had hoped. The canned tasted better but then did taste like canned peaches...decreased sugar by half. Can't wait til the real thing is at the farmer's market"
"I made the Peach Sorbet and it was quite good in spite of the fact that peaches in our area aren't the greatest yet. I'll make it again later in the summer. I did add Splenda along with the sugar."
"I used 6 packets of Stevia all Natural Herb for sweetener, 6 peaches, 1 cup of water and was really good, not sure of the calorie count but can not be high. Turned out great!"
"Anyone know if sugar substitute can be used successfully...? diabetic and need to cut the carbs"
"I can't wait to try this. I received an ice cream maker as a gift and have not had a chance to try it out yet. I think I've just found the recipe I need. Thx"
"wonderful I used fresh peaches from the grocery store if they had been fresh grown riper it would have been even yummier"
"For sweeter sorbet, after the mixture cools, use a packet of Stevia to up the sweetness without adding calories."
"question...can I use Splenda in place of the sugar? I am diabetic and I try to controll the amount of refined sugar I use"
"I just made this recipe..and it is very refreshing. if you are looking for a sweet sorbet this may not be for you. I used very ripe peaches, but I wish the sorbet was a little bit sweeter. I do love the consistancy, however. It is worth making again, but I will adjust the sugar to my preference."
