Strawberry Sorbet for #SundaySupper

Strawberry Sorbet | Magnolia Days

Springtime is here! It is official on March 20th. My favorite season of all begins and I could not be happier. I’m already seeing little buds on trees and plants. Pretty soon the landscape will be filled with blooms and greening up. It’s a busy time for me with gardening and tending to the yard. I make several trips to the local plant nursery and literally dig in the dirt. I also get excited about it being strawberry season. This year I plan on making many batches of strawberry sorbet.

Strawberry Sorbet | Magnolia Days

Strawberry season in Georgia starts in April. It goes through May which coincides with Mother’s Day. I always make chocolate covered strawberries and last year I made a strawberry cake. Out of all the berries, strawberries are my husband’s favorite. He usually goes to get fresh ones from the local farm. He gets a couple of big buckets full and so I’ll have lots to use for sorbet. I’ll need it to cool down after working hard outside. It gets rather hot here in spring. I think Mother Nature gets confused and thinks it is summer.

Another great thing about spring is the food. It starts with St. Patrick’s Day, then Easter, then the seasonal fruits and veggies. Going to the farmers market is so exciting. I have to get recipes lined up and ready. It just so happens today Sunday Supper contributors are sharing springtime recipes. How lucky for me and you! Check it out:

Love this strawberry sorbet Renee, just in time for strawberry season. So refreshing and delicious looking. I was just wondering the other day why haven't I churned anything all winter?! Happy Holidays!
