A sweet start to the fifth birthday means another sweet should follow. Especially after a one week gap. So here I am with a simple sweetlime sorbet.Sweetlime is available year around here and is usually consumed as such or juice or even added to fruit salads. I decided this time to turn them into a simple sorbet and have referenced Dianas Dessert for the same.
Fresh Sweet Lime Juice:3/4 -1 cup
Water: 1 cup
Sugar: 1/4 cup + as per taste
Pepper : a pinch (optional)
Make a simple syrup by heating water and add sugar to it.Stir till the sugar dissolves completely and the let it cool. Mix in the fresh squeezed sweetlime juice and pepper if using. Do the taste test. Add more sugar if needed and stir till dissolve if you find sweetness too low.
It is better to add extra sugar and make the juice mix sweeter as I had found that the frozen product has reduced sweetness than the liquid form.
Pour in a shallow baking dish/container and freeze for about 2 hours -just in time for ice particles to form. Take out give it a nice whisk, pour back into the baking dish/container and freeze for another 2-3 hours. Repeat the whisking and refreezing process few more times.
Take out,let sit in for a few minutes till scoopable and then serve scooped up in cups/dessert bowls.
A simple creamy and cooling sorbet.Simplicity at its best.It feels definitely good now that rains are delayed. But summer does have its advantages and this is one of those.
