This refreshing sorbet has an apple juice base with a hint of peppery watercress coming through. A fantastic palate cleanser or addition to a dessert.

Ingredients

  • 600ml water

  • 50g caster sugar

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced

  • 170g watercress

Method

Bring the water and sugar to the boil, then add the apples and simmer until they are cooked through and soft. Add the watercress then remove from the heat and leave to rest for 1 minute. Place the mixture in a blender and blend until as smooth as possible, then strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and allow to cool in the fridge. Finally, pour the mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
