Pineapple Sherbet - Chef Giselle Perez

Summer time anywhere in America evokes memories of long, hot days, sitting in the shade on a porch or under a large tree eating something cold and sweet.  Sweet like a New Orleans summer this porch front favorite is a classic that will help you keep the heat at bay.

Aunt Leticia’s Pineapple Sherbet

Serves 6

Ingredients for Pineapple Sherbet

3½ cups crushed canned pineapple packed in juice with the juice
5 ounce sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice or more to taste
2 egg whites
1 pinch salt

Directions to Make Pineapple Sherbet

Combine pineapple, sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for several hours.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt.

Take the chilled mixture from the refrigerator and fold in the beaten egg whites in 3 additions.

Freeze in an ice cream maker according to your machine’s directions. The sherbet will be soft. It may be served as is, or placed in a freezer to freeze harder.

Scoop into sherbet or ice cream bowl, garnish with mint (optional) and can serve with a small cookie or wafer.
