Spike's Apple Sorbet
Spike is the nickname of our friend Galton Blackiston, who is the owner and chef of the Michelin-starred country-house hotel Morston Hall in Norfolk. He's a fanatical Norwich City supporter, so we always end our meals there with lots of football tales until the early hours. He has generously allowed me to adapt his brilliant apple sorbet recipe.
|8 Granny Smith apples, washed and cored (no need to peel)|
|juice 4 limes|
|4oz (110g) membrillo (quince paste) or apricot jam|
|4oz (110g) golden caster sugar|
|fl oz (120ml) Calvodos|

|You will also need an ice-cream maker, pre-frozen according to the manufacturer's instructions (if you don't have an ice-cream maker, click on the link at the end of the recipe), and a lidded plastic box with a base measurement of 8 x 5 x 2 inches (20 x 1|
This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book Three.
First of all, chop the apples into ½ inch (1 cm) cubes and place them in a food processor, along with the lime juice, membrillo (or jam), sugar and Calvados, and process everything to a fine purée.
Now set a large, fine nylon sieve over an equally large bowl and pour the puréed mixture through it, pushing it with the back of a spoon to get as much apple pulp through as possible. All that should be left in the sieve are the tiny flecks of apple peel, which can be discarded. Now you need to be fairly swift or the apple will discolour.
Pour the mixture into the ice-cream maker and freeze-churn. This may take a little longer than usual, due to the generous quantity of alcohol. Either serve straightaway or spoon it into the plastic box and freeze for later. From the freezer, it will need 20 minutes in the fridge to soften before serving.
