Instructions
  1. Put the sugar, water and zest into a saucepan.
  2. Stir frequently until the sugar is dissolved over a low heat. Then boil for 5 mins until syrupy. Remove from the heat then chill until very cold.
  3. Add the lemon juice and stir well. Pour into your turning ice cream machine and begin to churn.
  4. Whisk your egg whites to firm peaks then add into the sorbet mixture after about 10 minutes. Continue to churn for another 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a container and pop into the freezer until you are ready to eat it.
Recipe Notes

 

Taste the mixture before you begin to churn that it is lemony enough for you.  If you need more zing, go for it and add another lemon.  You could also try this recipe with limes instead if you prefer.  The recipe can be made without egg whites but the amount you make will be less of course and the texture slightly different.  Still nice.  Adding the egg whites does mean your sorbet will go further and serve more people.
