Cantaloupe Sorbet


  • 1 ripe cantaloupe
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Peel the cantaloupe and discard the seeds. Cut into chunks and place in a food processor. Whirl until fully processed.

Meanwhile, combine water and sugar in a small saucepan to make simple syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then lower heat. Simmer and continue to stir occasionally for 5 minutes, or until sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to get to room temperature.

Once simple syrup is cooled, add half to the cantaloupe mixture in the food processor. Combine, then taste for sweetness. Add more simple syrup, as desired. 

Add the cantaloupe mixture to a tupperware container and chill for 2 hours, or overnight.

Once cooled, add the mixture to your ice cream maker and make according to manufacturer's instructions.
