Satsuma Mandarin Sorbet

Satsuma Mandarin Sorbet
Print Recipe
Every winter we buy 2-3 bushels of satsuma mandarins from the local Asian market. This year we had a lot left over and were looking for ways to use them. I started making ice cream this weekend so thought it would be nice to try this out. It retained all the fresh flavor of the fruit and was incredibly smooth.

Ingredients
Servings: quart
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir sugar and water until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Pour the simple syrup into a glass container and submerge in an ice bath to lower the temperature.
  3. Using a microplane, zest the oranges.
  4. Juice the oranges and lemon. Pass the liquid through a sieve to remove all the pulp.
  5. When the syrup is room temperature or below, mix in the juice and zest.
  6. Put the container in the fridge to cool -- 1-2 hours.
  7. Once sorbet mix has cooled to 34-36* F remove a pre-freezed drum and assemble the ice cream mixer. Turn it on, then begin to pour in the liquid.
  8. During the freezing process use a spatula or spoon to scrape the ice from the side of the drum if the dasher isn't doing its job well.
  9. When the sorbet has reached the proper consistency, about 20-25 minutes, remove from the mixer and transfer to a plastic container.
  10. Put in the coldest part of the freezer for at least 4 hours before serving.
