poached pear sorbet recipe

No ice cream maker? No problem, with chef/baker Leslie Bilderbacks new cookbook, No-Churn Ice Cream. Freeze and scoop your own ice cream, sorbet and gelato with nothing but a freezer and a scoop. It can be done, and pears are still in season, so poach away!

The flavor of a pear sorbet can stay as natural as you’d like, or it can be augmented by way of the poaching liquid. If you are interested in a pure pear flavor, keep the liquid neutral by using only water. If you’d like a more seasonal, spiced-up pear flavor, use wine and spices.
