Roasted Strawberry Sherbet
The beautiful colour of this frozen treat is all down to roasting the strawberries.
As summer approaches in the southern hemisphere, my heart and my mind turns to ice cream or as in this case, sherbet. Sherbet is something my mum used to make, I think largely because the larger ice crystals in sherbet are totally acceptable and back in the day she did everything by hand, literally. Remember those hand operated whisks? Yep...I'm that old.
Sherbet falls in between sorbet and ice cream, as it is similar to ices, but mostly includes dairy ingredients in small amounts, but is distinctly different from ice cream in flavour, mouthfeel, and texture.
Whatever it is called officially or otherwise, we love this, it is so refreshing and works very well in an ice cold lemonade as a 'spider' or as they say in the USA, an ice cream soda or a 'float'.
