White Nectarine Mint Sorbet

It's STILL warm here in Southern California, so we are enjoying cool treats.  Not quite ready to heat up the house with baking and warm drinks yet.  But, nectarines and peaches have been super yummy lately.  I just picked up some white nectarines at the farmers market.  This sorbet is such a beautiful color.  It's silky smooth and just the right amount of sweet, with very little sugar at all.  And nothing brightens up flavor like fresh mint - so refreshing.

White Nectarine Mint Sorbet
6 ripe white nectarines
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
juice from one lemon
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint

Bring to a broil and then immediately reduce to a simmer.  Simmer on medium low for about 15 mins. or until the nectarines and their skins are tender.  Puree in a food processor until completely smooth.   Chill completely.  Pour into ice cream maker and follow the manufacturers directions.  A minute before the sorbet is done, add the mint.  Freeze in an airtight container until ready to serve.

What's the weather like where you are?  We are still in the 90's.  Are you still trying to beat the heat with cool treats, or are you warming up with all the pumpkin spice everything?
