Ever needed a pudding in a hurry and don't think you have anything to use and relatively cheaply as well. Home made cordials or even bought cordials can be used as a light and refreshing dessert which doesnt take forever but it helps if you do a bit of pre-planning i.e. make the day before you require it.
So you don't make your own syrups/cordials! Well you can use shop bought ones as well like Belvoir Elderflower cordial as an example.
Basically the quantities are half cordial to half water with the addition of beaten egg white if so desired. (So say you were using half a pint of water then you would use half a pint of cordial/syrup. There is no need for any additional sugar either) Put mixture in the freezer trays in the fridge, when mixture starts to freeze take out and beat mixture to remove crystals. Re-freeze. Do this once more and you should have a light and delicious sorbet.
If you have an ice-cream machine/sorbet maker just put your mixture in and let the machine work its magic - all you have to do is switch it on.
