Another sorbet.

I'm liking the sorbets these days. They're so easy to make, have less sugar than most treats.. and they taste so good!

This time I tried pineapple.

Recipe from here.

1/2 Pineapple (about 2 cups)
4 to 8 Tablespoons of Sugar (the more ripe your pineapple is, the less sugar you will need)
1/2 Cup of Water

Cut up 1/2 fresh Pineapple into cubes and place in a quality food processor or blender. Add the sugar and water and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into a covered freezer safe container and freeze for at least 1-2 hours. 

Remove the mixture from the freezer. At this point if you have an ice cream maker begin using it now and follow manufacturers instructions.

Don't worry, if you don't have an ice cream maker then pour the Pineapple Sorbet back into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Once that is done, spoon the sorbet into the final container you wish to freeze it in. Put back into freezer for 5 hours.

On a completely unrelated note... Guess what is fun. My parents have a birds' nest in their pear tree!
