Method

  • Measure the water and sugar into a saucepan and bring to simmer, stirring until dissolved.
  • Allow the syrup to cool completely then stir in the lemon juice and strain.
  • For best results, freeze in an electric ice maker.
  • If you do not have an ice cream maker, transfer the mixture to a stainless steel or enamel bowl and freeze for 1 hour or until the mixture begins to freeze around the edges.
  • Whisk well to break down the ice crystal evenly.
  • Return to freezer and freeze for a further 1 1/2 to 2 hours, whisking every 30 minutes, until firm.
  • Transfer the sorbet to a plastic container, cover and store in the ice compartment of your refrigerator until ready to serve.
