little lemon

When Jon was still in Kona, we made lemon sorbet, it was so delicious, we got the lemons from Pakas parents house.Their lemon tree was chock full of lovely yellow lemons. I used the hollowed out lemons as little cups. They were so cute!

Here is the recipe for the lemon sorbet, it's delicious I personally like sorbet a bit tangier, so I would not use as much sugar.

Lemon sorbet

500g caster sugar (powdered sugar)
250ml lemon juice (6-8 lemons)
1 lemon , unwaxed, zested

Difficulty and servings
Makes 1.2 litres

Preperation and cooking times
Ready in 20 minutes, plus churning

Put the sugar in a pan with 750ml water. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves then simmer for a couple of minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and zest then leave to cool.
Churn the liquid in an ice cream machine to sorbet consistency. Serve a couple of scoops per person sprinkled with a few strands of lemon zest.
