Cantaloupe–Black Pepper Sorbet

Cantaloupe-Black Pepper Sorbet

Makes 1 quart

This combination was a hit with the VT staff. A tablespoon of olive oil enhances the spicy-sweet flavor, but leave it out if you prefer a fat-free sorbet.
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 4 cups cantaloupe cubes (1 medium cantaloupe)
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. cracked black pepper

1. Stir together sugar and 3/4 cup water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat, and cool.

2. Purée cantaloupe cubes in food processor until smooth and no small pieces remain. Add sugar syrup, oil, salt, and pepper; pulse until combined.

3. Chill in refrigerator until cold, then churn in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Transfer to 1-quart container, and freeze.
