Easy Lime Sorbet

  Lime juice/0.5 cup of lime juice for a more mild sorbet 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For A Really Strong Sorbet)
  Lime zest 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)

First we are going to extract the juice from our limes. We use fresh limes when we can otherwise just
use lime juice from a bottle. Your local supermarket should carry this.
We are using a cup of lime juice for this sorbet but beware it will knock your socks off. Use ½ cup of lime
juice if you want a more mild flavored sorbet.
Take 1 cup of water and pour it in a pot, then add the desired amount of lime juice you want, and 1 cup
of sugar. Heat the contents of the pot up on the stove until it starts to boil, then remove from the pot
and transfer to a container.
Give the mix a quick stir with a spoon or whisk and then add some lime zest. If you don't have any zest
on hand, just skip this step. Then place the container with the mix in your freezer and freeze overnight.
The next day take the mix and break it up with a fork or spoon and place it in a stand mixer. Beat the
mixture on high for a minute and then transfer the slushy sorbet into a container and freeze for another
four hours.
After four hours the sorbet is ready to be served. You can replace the lime in this recipe with any other
fruit or flavor you like. The possibilities are endless.
