This Peach and Sage Sorbet could not be easier to make. As I’m sure you know, sorbet has only a minimal amount of sugar which makes it the perfect dessert or snack for when you’re looking for something sweet, but don’t want to sabotage yourself by eating a big bowl of ice cream or sherbet, that has twice as much sugar and calories.
If the thought of removing the skin from a peach is daunting to you, let me assure you that it’s a very, very simple process that only takes a pot of boiling water, a bowl of ice water and a pairing knife.
Here’s the fast and easy way to remove the skin off a peach…Do it once and you’ll be a pro for life 🙂
-Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat.
-In a large bowl, add enough ice and water to make an ice bath.
-Use a pairing knife to score an X into the bottom of each peach.
-Use a slotted spoon to gently lower the peaches into the boiling water.
-Allow the peaches to sit in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds.
-Use the slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the pot and carefully place them in the ice bath.
-Use the paring knife to carefully peel the skin off the peach starting where the X was cut on the bottom.
