Strawberry N Chocolate Chips Sorbet

Strawberry and Chocolate chips sorbet is a frozen blend of pureed strawberries with few chocolate chips, sugar with a light and refreshing taste and soft even they are slightly grainy..Sorbet is a french word for sherbet and is made with fresh fruit juices or purees, sugar, water and sometimes with lemon or lime juice..Sorbets become very popular in 19th and early 20th century when they were served as a palate cleanser between the courses..Today they are sometimes served between the courses, but very much often they are served for desserts...Fruit sorbets are really very light and refreshing which goes for only fruit purees, water, sugar and lime juice, the water and sugar are combined to a makes a sugar syrup which is chilled and then added to the fruit purees.. U can very well use fresh or frozen strawberries to make out this sorbet...I have added few chocolate chips to change the usual strawberry sorbet, frozen chocolate chips makes this sorbet bit rich and more tasty while having...Needless to say am sending this strawberry sorbet to Happy Cook's Strawberry Feast....




2cups Fresh Strawberry puree
3/4cup Sugar
1/4cup Water
1tbsp Lime juice
1/4cup Chocolate chips

Add the sugar and water in a small sauce pan, heat the pan in simmer and stir until the sugar gets dissolved, keep aside and let the syrup get cooled , place the syrup in fridge until they are completely chilled...Take the strawberry puree, lime juice together in a bowl and add gradually the chilled sugar syrup, stir well... finally add the chocolate chips, give a stir and pour the strawberry puree in a stainless steel container and arrange in freezer...

When the sorbet is completely frozen , remove from the freezer..let the sorbet stand in room temperature until they are partially thawed to be served...

Enjoy!!
