Hop Sorbet

In honor of IPA Day, here is my recipe for Hop Sorbet.

4 cups ruby red grapefruit juice
2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cup water
3 cups white sugar
zest of one grapefruit
1 oz. Cascade hop pellets

Mix together all ingredients except hops and bring to a boil for 10 minutes.

Remove from heat, add hop pellets. Stir until pellets are broken up.  (It looks a bit like pea soup at this point!)

Chill in fridge for a minimum of four hours or over night.

Put in ice cream machine as directed by the manufacturer. (I have also done this by putting in straight in the freezer after it is cooled and stirring it every 30 minutes until it becomes slushy.  After that let it freeze solid and the sugar content makes it pretty easy to scrape it out later.)
