Melon sorbet

Added by: on Dec 17th, 2010
The first of the season's melons have arrived from Italy. I love this time of year, when these perfumey fruits begin to come in, getting sweeter week by week. You can make this as a granita if you don't own an ice-cream machine.

Put 200g (6 3/4 fluid ounces) of the juice into a pan, add the dextrose, mix with a hand blender and bring to 104°F (40°C). Whisk in the sugars and stabilizer, if using. Bring up to 185°F (85°C), then take off the heat and cool as quickly as you can, so that you don't encourage bacteria.


When the mixture is cold, mix in the rest of the melon juice and the lemon juice. Put into the fridge for 6 to 12 hours. Put into an ice cream maker and churn according to instructions.
