Fresh Watermelon & Mint Sorbet
- 5 cups fresh watermelon
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 10-15 chopped mint leaves
- First make your mint simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and it comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and add the mint leaves. Let steep for 20 or so minutes and then remove the mint leaves with a strainer. Refrigerate the simple syrup until completely chilled, a few hours should be enough.
- Prepare your watermelon by pureeing 5 cups in a blender and then put it in the fridge to chill for a few hours. You want both the simple syrup and the fruit to be completely cold.
- In your ice cream maker process 1 1/4 cups of the simple syrup (you will have some left over) and the watermelon until you are happy with the consistency, in the KitchenAid attachment its about 10 minutes. After processing put it in the freezer for a few hours before serving. Enjoy!
