Kiwifruit and Brandy Sorbet

By 12th August 2016 October 7th, 2019 No Comments

Kiwifruit is cheap at this time of the year

Why is this?
The season has started, China doesn’t want them any more?
Green is out?
Over loaded with the furry little things ?
There are so many things we can do with kiwifruit!

You can do:

A cocktail
Chopped fresh ! great source of vitamin c especially for our kids
A cheesecake
Upside down cake

But I find a sorbet is a wonderful way of celebrating the plentiful fruit

Make heaps and freeze it down for the rest of the year.

  • 350 ml water
  • 90 ml sugar
  • 500 gm ripe kiwifruit
  • 30 ml brandy
  • Juice of 1 lemon


Add the sugar to the water and bring to the boil, simmer for 3 minutes. Allow to cool. Puree kiwifruit with brandy and lemon juice and pass through sieve to remove the small seeds. Mix the cold syrup and kiwi pulp and freeze whisking from time to time to remove the large ice crystals or put through ice cream machine.
