Cantaloupe Sorbet

1 medium cantaloupe or other melon, seeded
1 cup simple syrup (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
fresh berries for garnish

Cut the ripe cantaloupe fresh into chunks and puree them in a food
processor to measure about 3 cups. Stir in the syrup and lemon
juice. Taste carefully. If the melon is not fully ripe, you may
want to add a little more syrup. Cover and freeze the fruit puree
in ice cube trays [we needed 2.5 trays worth].

When frozen, place several cubes at a time into a food processor
and puree until smooth. Process as many cubes as you want and
enjoy! [One tray's worth of cubes was about 2 servings].

Simple Syrup

2/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Put the water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower the
heat, cover and cook at a gentle boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Make
sure the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the lemon juice and
let cool. Use in above recipe. Makes about 1 cup.
