Inspired by a favorite family mint julep recipe, this sorbet can be served as dessert or as an intermezzo course.
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup chopped fresh mint
- Zest of 1 lemon, removed with a vegetable peeler
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup lemon juice, (4-6 lemons)
- 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.
- 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.)
