Watermelon Sorbet

So I had a watermelon at my house

My kids ate some, but not enough

It was starting to turn

Like every season turn, turn turn

So what was I to do...

Make Watermelon Sorbet

Let me say this was not nearly as daunting as I thought it might be.


4 C pureed watermelon (which is about six cups of fruit cut)
1/4 C sugar
Peel from one lime (no pith, just the green)
Salt (just a pinch)
1/2 C Corn Syrup

Place 1 cup of puree in with your sugar, lime, and salt and heat over medium/low until all of the sugar dissolves.

Add in remaining 3 cups of puree and corn syrup.

Continue to heat until all ingredients are incorporated.

Place mixture in a metal pan (I chose a loaf pan)

Then place in freezer until solid

When you are ready to eat you will need to allow the mixture to come to room temperature for easy scooping.

Today is the last day to vote for me at Circle of Moms to ensure that I am in their top 25 Family Blogs.  If you can find it in your heart to show me some love I would greatly appreciate it.


  1. So refreshing on a hot day! This is good :)
    Oh Rachael, you may wanna go crazy over my Angry Birds Recipe Collection @ Angry Birds Onigiri Lunch Box (Part II)! Have fun :)

  2. This looks delicious! I'm going to try it tomorrow with a yellow-meat watermelon we purchased at a local produce place. Thanks!

  3. I have a watermelon just begging to be made into that sorbet, it sounds so very very good,and a perfect treat for these hot summer days!

  4. Brilliant. Have you tried this with a concentrated juice instead of corn syrup?
