Some people will tell you that blood oranges taste the same as regular oranges (and maybe they do), but there’s something much cooler and tastier about the deep red color of the juice.
Anyway, I adapted David Leibovitz’s recipe for blood orange sorbet, and boy was it good!
Make sure not to overchurn it in the ice cream maker. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, this sorbet, as well as any other citrus based sorbet, will be a little icy. Either way, it has a short shelf life, but we didn’t have much trouble finishing it up.
Blood Orange Sorbet
2 cups blood orange juice (from about 6 oranges)
~1/3 cup honey
Add honey to blood orange juice. Taste. Add more honey if neeed.
Churn in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
