White Peach and Rose Sorbet

Hey guys. How was your weekend? Obviously I was laying low. The most exciting part was that Pete went and picked up a little scooter for me. Then the girls decorated it with a bunch of bows.

As silly as it is- I have to admit that when we took it to the grocery store on Sunday (so I could get out of the house) I could like work up a little speed in the aisles and it was fun- like I was grinning when no one could see me. It felt like being a kid.

Also the scooter let me make this for about the 10th time for dinner on Saturday. Still love it and everyone that eats it loves it too. My other highlight was watching funny movies on Sunday (to the tune of the 40 Year Old Virgin). My doctor said my homework is to watch funny movies so I don’t get depressed. I can’t tell if that is depressing advice in itself!? I mean, I wasn’t planning to get depressed? I’m just planning to ignore the fact that I can’t walk and really start paying attention in about a month.

In the mean time I am just reading a lot. Oh and watching stupid movies- any favorites that I have to watch?? Also- thank goodness, I have had lots of work to do which keeps me busy. And some of that delicious work has been nibbling spoonfuls of this delicious sorbet that I made last weekend.

The subtle sweet flavors of the peach and the rose are so lovely together and the pale pink color is just so, so pretty. My little girls went nuts for it and it’s especially pretty if you sprinkle some fresh rose petals on top (they are edible). I hope you love this sweet and easy recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups white peaches, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • rose petals for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, combine the peaches, lemon juice, rose water, sugar and water to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the sugar has dissolved and the peaches are soft.
  2. Let the mixture cool for about 15 minutes, then pour the contents into the jar of a blender. Puree on high until the mixture is very smooth. Add extra 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and quickly blend for a few more seconds.
  3. Pour the sorbet mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to directions or just pour it into a metal loaf pan and put in the freezer. Either way, the sorbet should be in the freezer at least 6 to 8 hours.

  2. So gorgeous, love that pretty pale pink color!

  3. The rose petals, how gorgeous! This is just so PRETTY! Would be gorgeous at a shower or some sort I am imagining! Pinned

    And good for you for the scooter and for not getting depressed and for watching funny movies – sounds like you are handling this so amazingly well!

  4. Such a cool flavour Heather! Loving the rose water in there!

    • Katrina- I think the rose water just adds a little something extra to it :)

    I just re-watched recently: Tootsie, with Dustin Hoffman; Beverly Hills Cop; and When Harry Met Sally. All funny, and the two romances are so sweet. I also recommend: Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont, and Chocolat. The scooter sounds cute with the bows. All best wishes for good healing!

    • Tootsie is my favorite!! I saw that it was on the other day but no one would let me turn it to that channel! You are right- I need to watch all of those movies! I wish my parents had netflix!

  9. This is gorgeous!! And it sounds ridiculously refreshing and tasty. :)

    • Thanks so much Michelle- it is really refreshing- especially in the summer heat!

    This is gorgeous! Can you imagine paired with pink champagne cake/cupcakes for a special occasion? Your doctor is a wise man. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a doctor say that. A Good Year always makes me laugh when Russel Crowe drives the rental car.

    • Vicki- that is exactly what I pictured when I saw the end product- it is just so lovely.

      • Also Vicki- it was a woman that told me that ;)

  11. Maria says:

    So pretty love the blush color!! So nice to see you and your beautiful girls
    yesterday! A book if u haven’t read as I have just finished is
    called Cakewalk by Kate Moses. It’s a funny read as she shares recipes from her
    family and her own. A little Amy Phoeler/ David Sedaris. I was told by a great friend when I was bed ridden it’s a reminder to slow down in such busy lives we lead.
    All the best to u and heal well!:)))

    • It’s always great to see you Jeannie!! I will order cakewalk on my kindle :)

  14. This is beautiful! And sounds so delicious.

    • Thank you stephanie- it really is so delicious!

  15. Now this is how to do sorbet. Gorgeous, Heather! I was so sorry to hear about your knife incident and surgery. Sending you good thoughts for quick healing.

    • Thank you so much Dara- I appreciate the happy thoughts :)

  16. This is sooo beautiful, my gosh! Besides those flavors, my goodness that color is swoon-worthy in it’s own right. I cannot wait to make this.

  17. Mary Frances says:

    Love the beautiful color! I just returned from picking peaches and am going to make a lot of this. Did you peel the peaches and if not did you remove them before pureeing the mixture? Thank you.

    • keep the skin! it gives it the beautiful almost lavender blush.

  21. Oh how I wish peach season lasted forever! Sounds and looks incredible.
