I absolutely love this watermelon sorbet, which is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe. There are only 4 ingredients (frozen watermelon chunks, lime juice, mint and ginger preserve) which results in a wonderfully refreshing summer dessert. And it takes minutes to whizz up in a food processor!
You should be able to buy the ginger preserve in the supermarket. Happy summer : )
Watermelon Sorbet (serves 8)
1 small – medium watermelon
Small handful of mint leaves
2 tbsp of ginger preserve
Juice of 2 limes
Cut off the watermelon rind and chop the flesh (seeds and all) in to chunks. Freeze for at least 8 hours.
When ready to make, remove the watermelon chunks and blitz in a food processor with the mint leaves, ginger preserve and lime juice until a sorbet consistency . Do this in batches if you need to, as if you overload the food processor it will take ages! Garnish each serving with a sprig of mint.
