Sorbet, Sherbet, whatever your call it....this is good!

Sorbetto di Uva
Grape Sorbet
A Tuscan recipe perfect for a sunny day. Relatively easy to do, but needs patience. I find this recipe versatile enough to substitute grapes with other berry fruits. Though an ice cream machine would make things easier, a freezer would do well enough.

1.5 kg red grapes
225 ml water
125 g sugar
3 tbsp sugar
1 egg white

Place grapes, destemmed, into a pot with the water and sugar. Over low heat, let simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until soft
Remove from heat and let cool for about 2 minutes
Place grape mixture in blender and pulse until smooth
Stir in the lemon juice
Place in an aluminum tub with lid if not using an ice cream maker.
Place tub in freezer and allow enough time to harden
When frozen, break into small chunks, and then place in a food processor or blender.
Add egg white and blend until creamy.
Refreeze and serve.
