  3. Process the strawberries in a food processor or in batches in blender, then press the puree through a large sieve into a bowl.
  4. Pour the puree into a freezerproof container, strain in the syrup and freeze for 4 hours, or until mushy. Transfer to a food processor and process until smooth. Whisk the egg white until frothy, and stir into the sorbet. Spoon the sorbet back into the container and freeze until firm.
