Lemon and Ginger Sorbet

Life here is hot, and I’m not complaining! When I need a little cooling down, I find sorbet so refreshing. I probably prefer sorbet to ice cream. No matter how full I am, I can always manage a scoop of sorbet! I had a go at making my own ginger and lemon version. I love this combination, ginger is one of my favourite flavours and it’s so good for you – it’s an anti-nauseant which means it’s a great hangover cure. Here’s how I did it,

You will need:
Four lemons
A big knob of ginger
400g sugar

sorbet 1

Step 1: Put the sugar in a large pan with 750 ml water. Peel and chop the ginger finely and add this to the pan with the juice of all four lemons, and the rind of one lemon.

Step 2: Simmer the pan for 30 mins

Step 3: Pour the mixture into a dish and freeze. If like me, you don’t have an ice cream mixture, just stir the sorbet after 2 hours and then leave to freeze overnight.

To serve, let the sorbet defrost in the fridge for ten minutes and give it a good stir before spooning into bowls or glasses.
