Grilled strawberries with limoncello sorbet

Skewered strawberries doused in powdered sugar are flavored by the grill rack in this recipe and served with an invigorating, homemade limoncello sorbet.

Number of Servings: 8
Prep: 30 min | Freeze: 8 to 24 hrs
Grill: 6 min

2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 1/2 cups lemon juice
2 tablespoons limoncello
48 strawberries
1 cup powdered sugar

For sorbet:
1. In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar and the water. Bring to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Stir in lemon peel, lemon juice, and limoncello. Cover and chill.
2. Transfer mixture to a 2- to 4-quart ice cream freezer; freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. Transfer sorbet to a nonmetallic freezer container. Cover and freeze for 8 to 24 hours or until firm.

For strawberries:
3. On sixteen 6-inch skewers*, thread strawberries, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces. Dip strawberries into powdered sugar, turning to coat.
4. For a charcoal grill, place strawberry skewers on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-low coals. Grill about 6 minutes or until strawberries are heated through, turning frequently to heat evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-low. Place strawberry skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Serve strawberries with sorbet.

*If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
