I had some strawberries and buttermilk in the refrigerator that I wanted to get rid of before some travel time. What should I find, but a perfect recipe that got rid of both in a very pleasant and easy way.
I found this recipe in a May 2008 issue of Southern Living. Very simple, and very, very good. Since you are not using heavy cream, you can really enjoy this treat. Only 4 ingredients. That's good. I can imagine do this with a lot of different fruit.
Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet
from Southern Living, May 2008 issue
2 cups fresh strawberries or one 16 oz. package of frozen berries, thawed
2 cups buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Process strawberries in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour strawberry puree through a fine wish mesh strainer into a large bowl, pressing with the back of a spoon. Discard solids. Add buttermilk, sugar and vanilla to the puree. Stir until well blended. Cover and chill 1 hour.
Pour strawberry mixture into an electric ice cream make and freeze according to directions. Mine took about 25 minutes. Remove from ice cream freezer and put in a container in the freezer for several hours until ready to scoop.
