What Basically Is Lime Sorbet?
Lime sorbet is a tangy sorbet that comes together when we blend together the lime juice, zest, sugar, and water with a little ice, then freeze it
in an ice cream machine for 20 to 25 minutes. Then throw it in a container, put it in the freezer for 2 hours, and it will be scoopable. For more information, see the recipe below!
How to Store and Freeze the Lime Sorbet?
After churning, the sorbet will firm up even more in the freezer. It tastes the finest after two hours in the freezer.
Lime sorbet can stay in an airtight jar in the freezer for a month. Allow it to warm up on the counter for a few minutes before scooping.
Tips for Making Perfect Lime Sorbet
- We recommend using freshly squeezed lime juice for this recipe. If you have it, bottled will work, although the taste will be muffled.
- 8 to 10 medium to large limes should give enough juice to fill 1 cup, but keep in mind that some limes are less juicy than others, so you may need somewhat more fruit.
- Key limes are exceptionally tart and will produce a particularly sour sorbet. Adjust accordingly.
