  • 3 large Pink or Red Grapefruits (scrubbed)
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • ¼ cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 4 cups Water
  • A dash of Red Food Coloring (optional)
How to make Pink Grapefruit Sorbet:
  • Remove three long strips of grapefruit peel (only the peel, not the pith), using a large vegetable peeler or large zester. Set aside.
  • Squeeze out 2 cups of juice from the grapefruits.
  • Combine grapefruits peel, white sugar, corn starch and water in a saucepan, placed over the stove.
  • Stir well to dissolve the sugar and bring the contents to a boil. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • When the mixture has cooled down, keep it in the refrigerator to chill. Remove the grapefruit peel.
  • Using a sieve or strainer, strain the grapefruit juice to remove the pulp. Discard the pulp.
  • Combine together sugar syrup and grapefruit juice.
  • Add in the red food coloring, one drop at a time, to get the desired pink color.
  • Pour the preparation into a metal baking container and cover. Put it into the freezer.
  • Stir occasionally, until the mixture has set partially, say for about 4 hours.
  • Remove and process it in a blender and transfer back into the container.
  • Freeze the sorbet until firm.
  • Serve chilled.
