Lemon Sorbet Recipe

By San Diego Dining Dish

I'm taking a bit of a break from the reviews to focus on my library classes (semester ends this month!), but in the meantime, I've been thinking about making homemade lemon sorbet. It's clean, light, and cold - and is perfect for the upcoming hot months.

I found this recipe at, but most of the recipes I found online have a similar structure.

In a small saucepan, bring the water and the sugar to a boil, stirring the mixture to dissolve the sugar. Add the lemon juice and zest to the sugar syrup and freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
