Less is more with this high-flavor, low-fat peach sorbet. It’s a fully adult confection, with the mysterious heat of the chipotle providing high contrast to the chilled, grilled peaches. Cinnamon adds another layer of sophistication, making Mexican Grilled-Peach Sorbet a light yet robust finish for a gourmet dinner. You can do most of the preparation the day before. Make the actual transformation into sorbet part of the entertainment if you want.
Use very ripe, cling-free peaches for the best flavor and the easiest handling. I buy juicy and sometimes bruised “ice-cream peaches” by the box at the farmers’ market and prepare them the same day. Grill the best halves and use the remaining peaches for cobbler or other recipes. This recipe costs just $1.51 a serving using top-quality peaches and probably less than a dollar a serving using ice-cream peaches. Because I live in the South East, I can’t buy local, organic peaches. I buy local and always peel them before eating or using in recipes.
