Citrus, Ginger and Green Tea Sorbet
Courtesy of the Seattle and King County Department of Public Health
2 tbsp fresh ginger, chopped
¾ cup water
1 green tea bag
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
½ cup water
¼ cup honey
Snipped fresh mint for garnish (optional)
1. In a small saucepan, add the ginger and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat then turn off. Add tea bag and allow to steep for 2-3 minutes. Using a fine mesh sieve or colander, strain the liquid into a freezer-safe medium sized bowl (non-metallic) and discard the solids. Let cool for 30 minutes.
2. Stir in the orange and lemon juices, water, and honey and mix thoroughly. Cover and freeze for about 3-4 hours. Using a wooden spoon, break the semi-solid mixture into chunks. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour back mixture into freezer bowl, cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.
3. Use an ice-cream scoop to serve the sorbet topped with fresh mint.
