Ingredients

  • 75ml water
  • 75ml sugar
  • 475–500ml pomegranate juice
  • Juice of half a lime

Pomegranate sorbet

  1. Heat the water and sugar in a pan over a medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved (there is no need to boil). Remove from the heat and chill in the fridge.
  2. Mix the pomegranate and lime juices with the water and sugar mixture. Churn and freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice-cream maker following the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively, pour into a freezer-proof container and place in the freezer.
  3. Leave for an hour, allowing the mixture to begin to freeze. Remove from the freezer and mix with a whisk to break up the ice, then replace.
  4. Repeat this several times until the sorbet is frozen. This will take up to 7 hours.
