When I first had a crack at making sorbet I was amazed at how great the homemade stuff tastes. There’s so much more flavour than the store bought version! Lemon sorbet is a real crowd pleaser: I think because the sour lemon combined with the sweet sugar base is the perfect marrying of flavour. So refreshing too!
The best part about sorbet is how easy it is to make. You really can’t get this recipe wrong. Just make sure you cool the mixture thoroughly before churning, preferably overnight. If you don’t, you ice cream machine may not be able to get the job done. The end result will be half frozen sorbet that, when added to your freezer, will freeze like rock.
Eat this sorbet on its own or add to your favourite spirit for an incredible cocktail.
