Watermelon Sorbet...

Servings: 6-8
5 cups coarsely chopped seedless or seeded watermelon
1/2 cup low GI cane sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
  1. In a small saucepan on medium high heat, make a simple syrup by heating sugar, zest and water until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let fully cool. 
  2.  Place watermelon and lime juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Set a sieve over a large bowl and press the puree through to remove tiny seeds (or use a large new clean dish wash cloth over a bowl to do the same thing). Whisk in the sugar syrup. Chill, either in the refrigerator, or by placing in a metal bowl over an ice bath.
  3. Once the mixture has thoroughly chilled, pour the mixture into a shallow pan and freeze in your freezer until semi-solid. Then take a fork and fluff it up, returning it the the freezer till freeze firm. Then put in a food-processor or blender to process until smooth.
    OR freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions and follow directions.
  4. Place sorbet in an airtight container and freeze until ready to serve.  You may need to let it sit out for a little while before serving, depending on the container and your freezer!
    Scoop out and garnish with mint.
