Since getting my ice cream maker I have made something every other day. It was the best purchase I have made in a long time. I made this recipe and my husband liked it so much that he wouldn’t share and ate it all! (Okay me and my FIL had a teeny bowl)
Your ingredients are:
Zest of 1 lime and 1 lemon
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1.5 cups of lemon/lime juice (for me it took 4 limes and 7 lemons)
1/4 cup of ice water
Start off my zesting your lime/lemon.
Bring your zest, water and sugar to a boil and let it gently simmer for 5 minutes.
Always be cautious with a simple syrup it burns much worse than simple boiling water.
Roll your lemons/limes on a cutting board and slice in half before juicing.
(It helps to juice your fruit a bit easier) I don’t have a juicer so I use a fork to help get all the juice out. I also juice the fruit over a small strainer so that all of the pulp doesn’t get into your sorbet.
Mix the 1/4 cup of ice water and your juice. Then mix in your cooled sugar mixture and place it in the fridge for at least an hour. It just has to be completely cool before placing in your ice cream machine.*
Once it’s nice and cool you are going to put your mixture right into your machine*
Leave it in for another 10 minutes and then place in a freezer safe container. You can eat it now but it will be a bit runny. Trust me it’s worth putting it in the freezer for a few hours
Grab a spoon and dig in!
** if you don’t have an ice cream machine just put your mixture into a freezer safe dish right away and stir every 15-20 minutes until it reaches the consistency that you want
