Watermelon Sorbet

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/watermelon_sorbet.html

From EatingWell:  Summer 2002, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This incredibly refreshing icy dessert is made without using an ice cream maker.

12 servings, 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 3 1/2 hours (including chilling & freezing times)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  2. Place watermelon and lime juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Set a sieve over a large bowl and press the puree through to remove tiny seeds. Whisk in the sugar syrup.
  3. Pour the watermelon mixture into a shallow metal pan and freeze until ice crystals form around the edges, about 30 minutes. Stir the ice crystals into the center of the pan and return to the freezer; repeat every 20 minutes until all the liquid is frozen.
  4. Serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and let harden in the freezer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve in chilled dishes.
