  • watermelon 1, cut in wedges and seeds taken out

    Remove the skin from the watermelon and cut the flesh into chunks. Purée in a food processor until smooth. Add sugar, a couple of tbsp at a time, until it is sweet enough. Remember that the cold will dull the flavour a little.

  • Step 2

    Chill the purée for two hours, then freeze in a container or churn in an electric ice-cream machine. Store the sorbet in the freezer until ready to serve.
