This is the easiest sorbet recipe ever. This differs from traditional sorbet recipes, as it doesn't include simple syrup. Honestly, I didn't have time to make simple syrup from scratch. It would have required way too long to chill to the appropriate temperature. I instead used a mixture of ice-cold water, lemon juice, confectionery sugar and almond extract. "Cooking Time" includes time needed to churn in an ice cream maker as well as time needed to cure in the freezer. If you are as eager as I was to eat this sorbet, you may choose to serve it directly after churning without freezing for 2-4 hours, but please be aware that the sorbet will be soft and melt faster. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family! Happy eating!
