  • 1-6.5 ounce package Love Beets Baby Beets in Sweetfire Marinade
  • 1 cup Water
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • ½ teaspoon fresh Ginger , peeled and diced
  • 3 small sprigs fresh Thyme
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed Orange Juice (3-4 oranges)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Honey
  • ¼ teaspoon ground Cinnamon


  • In a medium saucepan combine the beets, water, sugar, orange zest, ginger and thyme over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, allow to boil for one minute and remove from heat. Cover and allow to sit for 30 minutes.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer on a medium mixing bowl and pour the mixture through the strainer. Pour the strained liquid into a blender and add the beets as well. Blend until the mixture is fully pureed.
  • Place beet puree into a sealed container and refrigerate until it is fully cooled (approximately an hour).
  • While the beet puree is cooling, combine the fresh orange juice, honey and cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk just until the honey dissolved (2-3 minutes) and remove from heat. Place in a covered container and chill in the refrigerator.
  • When both mixtures are completely chilled, add them together and whisk to fully combine.
  • Process the liquid in an ice cream maker following the manufacturer’s instructions. Once sorbet is fully frozen in the machine, remove and place in a freezer-safe container to chill overnight for best consistency. To Freeze without a Machine: Place sorbet in a shallow freezer-proof pan. Allow to almost freeze fully (1 to 1 1/2 hours), and stir the mixture completely. Repeat the freeze/stir process a two more time times to ensure a consistent texture (this breaks up ice crystallization).
