Make the Most of Late-Summer Peaches with This Sorbet

Every Sunday at my local farmers market feels like a race against time. I stuff my basket to the brim with tomatoes, corn, and zucchini — already anticipating the sad day when they’ll be replaced by apples and winter squash.

Inevitably, my produce FOMO leads to over-purchasing these late-summer ingredients — this week it was peaches. But this peach-ginger sorbet, with a thyme syrup drizzled over top, will take care of my surplus.

All you have to do is purée peaches — pitted, peeled, and chopped — with fresh ginger and some ginger simple syrup in a blender. Strain the fruit mixture, add some fresh lemon juice, and then churn in an ice cream maker. Pour into a freezer-safe container and let the sorbet hang out in the freezer until completely set. Meanwhile, make the thyme simple syrup.

When the sorbet is ready, drizzle on some thyme syrup and enjoy the fruits of your labor. (Pun intended.)
