Ginger-Rosemary Sorbet

If you like ginger and have a sweet tooth...this is the recipe for you!  
It's too sweet for me, but I think it will go well with lemonade.

1 c water
1/4 c brown sugar 
1/2 c white sugar*
1 chunk of ginger root, chopped up small
pinch of dried rosemary, ground up
1/2 tsp salt

*my plan was to use all brown sugar...but then I discovered that I only had 1/4 c left. oops.

bring everything to a boil, simmer for a minute or two, then let cool
throw it in the food processor to grind up the ginger and rosemary as much as possible

pour into a pie plate

Throw it in the freezer.  Stir as often as you can while it is freezing.  
Mine went in the freezer around 7 PM, I stirred it 3 or 4 times before going to bed at 9.  
Unlike many of my sorbets, it was not frozen solid by morning...probably because I used too much sugar. 


  1. I am obsessed with rosemary! I will have to add this to my list of things to try! I made chocolate chip cookies on Sunday, but during the mad rish to make them before 3:00 (it was 2 when I started), I forgot to throw a bit in to half the batter. Next time!

    1. You definitely need to remember the rosemary next time, rosemary choc chip cookies are absolutely divine. I am completely obsessed with rosemary as well.
