Pear Rose Sorbet

Did you know September is California Wine Month?

We have a whole month to celebrate!

Yay us!

Pear Rose Sorbet

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.

California Rose Wine

I used a sweet rosé wine from California (of course!) for the base

Bartlett Pears

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…

Bartlett Pears

Start by peeling, coring and quartering 4 pears

Add sliced pears to saucepan with sugar

Place them in a heavy saucepan and add the sugar

Add rose wine to saucepan

Pour in the wine and a few other ingredients

Pears and rose in saucepan

Cook on the stovetop and simmer for about 30 minutes

Pour pears into food processor
Pour pears into food processor

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

Put the mixture in a bowl

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

Freeze mixture

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

Scoop sorbet

Scoop up and enjoy!
