Watermelon Sorbet

Yes, I'm still hanging onto summer a bit...everyone else is posting about fall and pinning pumpkin recipes, and I'm posting something that just screams summer!  Fact is, I was craving watermelon and after cutting up just half of the huge one I purchased, I realized I had enough for us to nibble on for quite a while.  


But, what to do with the rest of the watermelon?  I thought a sorbet sounded mighty refreshing (it's still pretty hot outside after all).  And refreshing it is!  Such a great, light dessert for after dinner.     

Serves 8
Watermelon Sorbet

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
6 cups of diced watermelon

In food processor or blender, puree the watermelon chunks.  Place in fridge until ready to use.  In a small saucepan, add the sugar, water and lime juice and cook over medium until boiling and the sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat, let cool and chill.

Add the watermelon puree to the chilled syrup and pour into an ice cream maker.  Process according to manufacturer's directions.  Transfer the sorbet to airtight container and place in the freezer overnight (for best results).
