I had a lot of watermelon left over and was worried it was getting overly ripe so decided to make some refreshing watermelon sorbet.
A quick Google search for a watermelon sorbet recipe found this delicious treat with a few changes.
Watermelon Sorbet Recipe
4 cups pureed watermelon (1/4 of a large watermelon)
½ cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Chop up watermelon into small pieces then use a blender to puree it.
In a small saucepan bring ½ cup watermelon puree, lemon juice, zest and raw sugar to a simmer and remove it from the heat.
Allow mixture to cool for 20 minutes.
Add the lemon and watermelon mixture to the rest of the pureed watermelon and mix well.
Place mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
