Melon Sorbet

Another hot day in Istanbul finally made me make sorbet. I was postponing any 'ice-cream' delight to some other day as it seemed so complicated. But this time I decided to please myself without going to any store just from what I have. So I read several sorbet recipes and gave it a try! Proud to say that it was a great try!!!

What we need:

1/2 melon, peeled and cored (about 500ml puree)
5 tbsp sugar
100 ml water
two leaves of mint ( pureed with melon)

What we have to do:

1. Cut the melon into chunks and puree in a blender with sugar and the water until smooth. Taste, then add up to 2 tbsp additional sugar, if desired.
2. Put puree into a freezer-friendly dish and put it into a freezer for 3 hours. Mix it with a fork every half an hour, then leave it again for 2 hours and serve!!!
