strawberry sorbet

I'm not sure if you guys have been stuck, so unfortunately, in a heat wave like me... but it has been so incredibly hot this past week — I wouldn't dare turn on the oven. I went to the beach the other day, and I couldn't stay out of the water for more than two minutes because it was so hot. The perfect solution: sorbet. 

1 pint fresh strawberries                               1/2 cup simple syrup*
1 tbs orange juice

*simple syrup: boil 1 cup sugar  + 1 cup water

strawberry sorbet:
 {cut up strawberries and add to blender}

 {add orange juice}
 {add simple syrup (it looks like water but that's just because the sugar dissolves while boiling)}
 {pour into a bowl and freeze for approximately 2 hours}

{all of the bowls I like were in the dish washer so I used a bread pan (: } 

Although I didn't have an ice cream maker, the sorbet turned out really well. But if you do have one, I would suggest using it! It was delicious and refreshing! Enjoy :)
