First, make a basic stock syrup with the sugar and water for the base of the sorbet
Making stock syrup
To make stock syrup, simply heat equal amounts of water and sugar in a pan until dissolved
Place the strawberries in a large bowl along with the salt, lemon zest, star anise and thyme
Suspend the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until the strawberries have broken down. This will naturally release all the juices and moisture from the fruit
Discard the star anise and thyme sprigs and pour the entire contents into a food processor. Add the stock syrup and lemon juice and blitz until smooth
Taste the mixture, ensuring that it has a nice balance of sweetness and acidity. Then, churn the strawberry purée in an ice cream maker until the sorbet is smooth. Store in the freezer until ready to serve
