Strawberry Tomato Water Sherbet

We’re timid to call this a flavor pairing because instead of complimenting each other, strawberries and tomatoes harmoniously echo each other. In fact, vine-ripened tomatoes from Southern Cali are so freaking sweet, plump, and aromatic that they provoke more “strawberry-ness” than most (actual) strawberries you’ll find in the grocery store. We lightly roast strawberries and bright red, drool-inducing tomatoes with a hint of sugar just until they begin to break down. Together, the strawberries and tomatoes go straight into the ice cream machine to produce a perfectly bright, fruity sorbet. Our tomatoes come from Tutti Frutti Farms, a fifth generation family farm in Lompoc, California.
