Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Brooklyn Supper
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 5- inch segment vanilla bean, halved
  • 4 cups hulled, chopped strawberries
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  1. Pour sugar into a small bowl. Scrape in vanilla beans. Using fingertips, rub beans and pods into sugar until vanilla is well incorporated. Fish out pods and reserve for another use.
  2. Toss strawberries with vanilla bean sugar, lemon juice, and sea salt. Spoon into the pitcher of a blender and puree. Pour puree into a large mixing bowl. 

  3. Whip cream to soft peaks. 

Fold whipped cream into strawberry puree, mixing just until combined.

  4. Set a metal bread pan or other freezer-proof container in freezer to chill. Process sherbet according to your ice cream maker's instructions. After processing, sherbet will be a bit soft. Spoon into chilled container, cover, and freeze until sherbet is set, preferably overnight.
  5. Set sherbet on the counter to soften slightly, then scoop and serve.
