Watermelon Sorbet

I love this cool, refreshing treat! Easy to make, and delicious!

6 c. Seedless watermelon
1-1/2 tbsp of lime zest
1/2 c. Fresh lime juice
Pinch of salt
1c. Sugar
2c. Water

Purée the watermelon in a blender or food processor. Strain and set aside.
In a saucepan, combine sugar and  2c. Of water. Cook over low- medium until sugar is dissolved. This is your simple syrup.
   In a large bowl, combine the strained watermelon, lime zest, lime juice, salt, and simple syrup. Refrigerate for about two hours.

Pour half of the mixture into an ice-cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions( this literally took less than ten minutes). Spoon into freezer containers and freeze until ready to use...if you can resist eating it immediately!
