Nashi Pear and Sake Sorbet

It's the beginning of winter now. It's getting colder nowadays but you wouldn't believe it. This ice cream keeps you warm. Yes you hear me, it's the sake that keeps you warm. After every mouthful of this rich in pear sorbet, it just gets warmer.

I've added a touch of cream and cookie crumbs just to give it more different texture and I just love how dairy cream sweeten things up a little.

I am submitting this recipe to Project 52 Ice Cream Mondays, hosted by Swee San to show my support for her.

Nashi Pear and Sake Sorbet

One recipe of Roasted Pear with Vanilla Bean and Lemon
1/2 cup good-quality sake
1/2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
Sugar Cookie Tart Crumbles to sprinkle
Nashi pear, thinly sliced, soaked in Sake
Softly whipped chantilly cream to serve

Pulse the roasted pear with ginger until very very fine. Push it through a fine sieve and add in the sake. Transfer to an ice cream machine and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

To serve, scatter some cookie crumbs on a serving plate and scoop a quenelle of the sorbet in the middle. Smear some cream around the plate and serve with an extra drizzle of the sake along with the Nashi pear slices.

Inspired but very loosely adapted from Iced: 180 very cool concoctions.
