Pear Rosé Sorbet

Did you know September is California Wine Month?

We have a whole month to celebrate!

Yay us!

To tell you the truth, around our house, we celebrate wine almost daily.  I recently read that drinking red wine, in particular, is one of the best ways to prevent some serious health problems.  

Everything in moderation, of course, but when you get the green light for a glass of wine, life just seems to be a little sweeter.

 

I decided to make a sorbet in honor of the cooler weather and Summer coming to an end.  One last hurrah for some chilled, homemade ice cream.

I used a sweet Rosé for the base

 

And a few ripe Bartlett pears for added texture and flavor.  

 

The process is pretty easy, you just need about a half hour for prep and then 6 hours of freezer time…

Start by peeling, coring and quartering 4 pears

 

Place them in a heavy saucepan and add the sugar

 

Pour in the wine and a few other ingredients

 

Cook on the stovetop and simmer for about 30 minutes

 

Puree the pears in a food processor and then add in the wine mixture and puree again until combined

 

Pour the mixture into a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for an hour

 

Transfer to a freezer container (I used a silicone loaf pan) and freeze for at least 6 hours.

 

Scoop up and enjoy!

 

Such a refreshing treat for the last few weeks of Summer.

 

Enjoy September Wine Month!

 

Here is the recipe for ya…
