Pineapple Sorbet

I've definitely been on a sorbet kick lately, and thought pineapple would be a good one to make next, since pineapple is my favorite fruit! This was probably the easiest one to make, and SO good! It's very refreshing, and though I only had vodka on hand, rum would be great in it as well!

Pineapple Sorbet
Makes about 4 cups

1 whole pineapple
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp vodka or rum

Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan, heat until the sugar dissolves. Peel and core the pineapple, then cut the fruit into rough chunks. Puree the fruit and sugar syrup in a blender of food processor, then pour into a bowl. Stir in the vodka or rum. Chill for at least 4 hours, then freeze in an ice cream maker.

Would this turn out okay without the alcohol?

I would love to make it!

Memoria - Yes you can leave out the alcohol. Its purpose is to help keep the sorbet soft, so yours will just be a little harder. Just leave it out on the counter for 10 min before trying to scoop it. :-)

Eric and I made this on Sunday, and it is so fantastic. I topped mine with fresh raspberries, and they went really well with the sorbet.
