Kiwi Sorbet

Few fruits pack the punch of flavor that the kiwi does, which makes it the ideal fruit to turn into sorbet. Be sure to choose a kiwi that feels softer to the touch—a hard kiwi will be less juicy and less flavorful. If you don't want seeds in your sorbet, just strain through a mesh strainer before freezing.
