Refreshing and floral, use slightly soft pears for the best flavor.
Like most sorbets, this recipe is pretty easy (yay) and requires blending
and really not much else. The really important thing is before churning the mix should be very cold and slightly too sweet. The first is to ensure a quick churn, smaller ice crystals and thus a smoother texture, and the second is because cold dulls the tongue and makes things taste less sweet. As long as you have those two things down, this sorbet (and really any) will come out great!
