Lemon-Mint Sorbet


From EatingWell:  July/August 1994

Inspired by a favorite family mint julep recipe, this sorbet can be served as dessert or as an intermezzo course.

4 servings, 3/4 cups each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours (including freezing)



  1. Combine sugar, mint and lemon zest in a large glass measuring cup or medium bowl. Pour boiling water over the sugar mixture, stirring to dissolve. Let steep for 20 minutes, then strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Stir in lemon juice. Chill until cold.
  2. Pour into the canister of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. (Alternatively, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth.)
