I'm posting this in answer to a request. I haven't made it myself. It was on a site called The Ice Cream Parlor. An ice cream maker is necessary. Times do not include chilling or freezing, and are guesses.
- Cook the sugar, water and lemon juice together, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and chill.
- Cut up the watermelon and remove all seeds.
- Puree in a blender or food processor.
- Stir into chilled syrup.
- Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Pack into an airtight container and store in the freezer.
I have made this sorbet at least three times. It was very good as written, but the lemon did add a bit too much tang for me. Now when I make this I add the juice from one half of a LIME, omitting the lemon... to me, the flavor is now closer to fresh watermelon. DELICIOUS, especially on those hot summer days.
I made this using 1/2 cup of light corn syrup instead of the sugar and water! So much easier! This tasted great! I think I'll add 1 tablespoon of vodka to the mix next time...it keeps the sorbet from freezing rock solid in the freezer! I'm adding my photo!
i made mine with splenda and it was just as good and lower in calories :)
