Made with just four simple ingredients, this Asian Pear Sorbet recipe is a simple and refreshing dessert for the summer, or any other time that you need a treat. The recipe requires sugar, fresh thyme, vanilla beans and a few Asian pears. Despite the pale pink color that the sorbet turns out to be, the infusion of vanilla and thyme add a bold flavor profile to this dessert.

Because of the fruit's high water content and grainy texture, it's been used in ancient remedies for treating coughs and sore throats. Although the fruit is turned into a sugary syrup, it may not have the same healing properties, but you can bet it will still be delicious.
