Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet

This sherbet is wonderfully tangy and refreshing. The buttermilk gives a wonderful taste and texture to this lemony sherbet. The sugar is just right, it is not too sweet, and the flavour of the lemon combine with the slightly tangy buttermilk really makes a refreshing dessert.

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet
(adapted from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz)
1/3 cup (80m) water
2/3 cup (130gm) sugar
1 lemon, preferably unsprayed
2 cups (500ml) buttermilk (I use 600ml)
1/4 cup (60ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)

In a medium, nonreactive saucepan, mix the water and sugar. Grate the zest of the lemons directly into the saucepan. Heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let stand until the syrup reaches room temperature, then chill thoroughly in the refrigerator.

Whisk the buttermilk into the syrup, then whisk in the lemon juice. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  6. This looks so easy! I haven't made sherbet yet, but I love that there are no eggs (i.e. quicker and easier). And I ALWAYS have buttermilk in the fridge and am ALWAYS looking for new ways to use it. Great recipe Joy, thanks!

  10. Believe it or not, I just made this exact recipe a couple of days ago. The only difference is that I used plain milk instead of buttermilk, but I am loving it all the same. Yours look superb.

  18. Oh wow, this is such a great treat. Can you believe that here in Montreal is still very cold with some occasional blizzards. I can't wait to take so liquid nitrogen and make some sorbet/ice cream again.
