July's challenge to myself will be better. Yup it will.
And nowww for sorbet!
So what do you do when your super cool Mommie Dearest gives you HALF a watermelon that's the size of the moon. This thing was seriously huge. Even after I ate a chunk of it there was still 100 pounds left. Ahaha! I kept asking this question what am I going to do with this melon.
I had a taste for sorbet so sorbet it became.
I don't know where I saw this recipe or if it's exact but this is what I used and how I made it....
5-7 cups of watermelon
1/2 of lime juice
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of sugar or less. I wanted to use Agave but I was out.
Boil the water add the sugar to make a simple syrup add the lime juice. Let this cool while you cut up your watermelon.
Put the watermelon in a blender or food processor whichever you have is fine.
I pulsed it a few times to give it a rough chop. Now pour in your simple syrup with lime juice and puree the melon until it's the consistency you like.
Once this is done pour your mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the normal freezing instructions. I have a Cuisinart model and all I have to do is pour all my ingredients in and turn it on.
So about 25 mins later I had the most perfect watermelon lime sorbet ever. The consistency is fantastic. It still has a little chunky quality from the watermelon. SO GOOD!
I imagine if I added some tequila this would be the perfect summer margarita.
Oh I did add a little more lime juice as it was churning because I wanted more citrus.
Enjoy and Keep on Making Stuff!
