Melon Sorbet

12

Can I just say…this sorbet is SO GOOD. I know. I say that about almost everything. But, this time I really really mean it. Melon and mint is a combination that sings of summer. Infused with lemon, for some zesty-brightness, and mint, for the earthy refreshment, this sorbet is truly heaven. This is pretty much summer in a bowl. A summer full of zesty sunshine. I think we all need a generous scoop of that.

Ingredients:

  1. 4 cups of melon (chopped)
  2. 2 tablespoons sugar
  3. ½ cup water
  4. a few sprigs of fresh mint
  5. juice of ½ a lemon

Method:

  1. Place the chopped melon in an airtight container and put it in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours or until completely frozen.
  2. In a small saucepan, add the sugar and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook till the sugar has completely dissolved.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the mint and allow it to cool completely.
  4. Store the syrup in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  5. In a food processor, add the frozen melon, the syrup and the lemon juice. Process until smooth.
  6. Store in an airtight container and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours before consuming.
