Watermelon SorbetPosted: August 16, 2004 | Author: marga | Filed under: Ice Cream | Leave a comment »
About three years ago, Mike had an incredible watermelon sorbet at Charles Nob Hill. One of my motivators in getting an ice-cream maker was to be able to make it for him. Today I finally try but my attempt wasn’t very successful. He says the taste is fine but it doesn’t have the melt-in-your-mouth consistency sorbet should have. We suspect the problem is that the watermelon wasn’t pureed enough (I used a food processor). Next time I think I will use the blender and then strain it (so that I end up with watermelon juice) before making it.
Here is the recipe I tried
-5 cups watermelon puree (about 1/2 a seedless watermelon)
-1 cup sugar
-1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Heat 1 cup of watermelon puree with the cup of sugar and stir until the sugar melts. Mix in the rest of the puree and the lime juice. Cool in the refrigerator or freezer. Put in the ice cream machine and freeze according to the instructions.
