This grape sorbet is from a special heritage recipe that dates back to my great-grandfather's gardening days in the 1950s. There was always a bowl of his fresh grapes on the table during summer, but when the nights started getting cold, the grapes on the vine became a bit soft. Always frugal, he came up with his own version of a sorbet, so he could use every last grape.

Cook's note: This grape sorbet recipe can be made with green grapes or red grapes.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chilled grapes (any variety)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Steps to Make It

  1. Process the grapes and sugar in a food processor or blender for 2 to 3 minutes, until the sugar is completely dissolved and the grape skins are pulverized.

  2. Press the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the solids.

  3. Stir the grape puree with the lemon juice and freeze the mixture in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
