Edit May 17, 2012: I have since learned that I can no longer tolerate produce that has been ripened with ethylene gas, as many melons are. If you have a corn allergy, please make sure that the fruit you select and use is safe for you.
I was listening to myself kvetch about not having any frozen deserts and suddenly remembered sorbet. I headed off to Kroger and grabbed the nicest watermelon I could find along with a couple of organic lemons.
The better the watermelon you have the better the sorbet will turn out, but even if the watermelon is as bad as mine was (and it was awful) the sorbet is still delicious.
- One watermelon all cut up, icky parts removed
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2 cups of water
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
