Delicious Champagne Pear Sorbet Recipe
4 large pears- you will want to peel, de-core, and slice them first
2 cups champagne- feel free to use sparkling cider for a kid friendly version
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg- freshly grated is best
1 tablespoon lemon juice- again, fresh is best
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
In a large saucepan, you will want to combine the pears, champagne, sugar, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Let this mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. You will know it is done when the pears are nice and soft. Turn off heat and remove from burner. Let the mixture cool naturally. When combination is room temperature, cover the saucepan with saran wrap and refrigerate. You will want to wait 2 hours, allowing the mixture to become well chilled. When the sauce pan is nice and cold, stir in the whipping cream.
Spoon the mixture into an ice cream maker. Freeze. You will want to follow the manufacturers instructions for you particular brand. Once completely frozen, scoop and enjoy!
