Blackberry and Ginger Sorbet

5/5 - (2 votes)

Black berry and ginger sorbet is an all-time favourite of mine. Sharp, sweet and with a kick of warmth form the ginger, it has brilliantly complex flavours. This recipe is designed to be made without a churner, so it is perfect to make at home without purchasing any expensive equipment. Ice-cream or sorbet is normally made with a churner to prevent the ice crystals getting too large, resulting in a smooth consistency. If ice crystals get too large the mixture will become solid, similar to an ice cube or ice-lolly. To prevent this and get a smooth, creamy consistency, we can add condensed milk. Condensed milk prevents ice crystals from getting too large because of the high concentration of milk solids (proteins). This allows us to get the silky end result we are after.

Top tip: frozen blackberries are considerably cheaper than fresh ones and the change won’t affect the flavour at all.

2tbsp condensed milk

There are 3 blackberries set out in front of the dish alongside some sweet ginger that has been sliced and splayed out, it is amber in colour.)
