Simple sorbets are a perfect accompaniment to cakes, pies, and fruit. You need to have an ice-cream maker. It's convenient to freeze sorbet in individual 1 oz. portions in flexible ice cube trays or silicone flexible mini-baking pans. These citrus sorbets are rather sour. I like to serve them with rich chocolate cakes or pies.
Yield: 32 ounces sorbet
Prepare Simple Syrup. Mix together the simple syrup, lime, lemon, or combination of juices, and water. Chill in a covered container for several hours until very cold. Freeze in an ice cream maker. Transfer to a single airtight container and freeze, or make individual portions in flexible ice cube trays or silicone mini-baking pans.
