    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • 2 tsp - 2tbsp (depending on strength) rosewater
  • handful pink rose petals, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. In a medium pan, combine the sugar with 300ml water. Let the sugar dissolve, then bring to the boil for 1 min. Put the strawberries in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Trickle in the sugar syrup, blend again, then add the lemon juice and rose water.

  2. Pour the strawberry mixture into a large freezer-proof container (an old ice cream tub is perfect), then freeze until almost solid, mashing in the ice crystals every 1-2 hrs until the sorbet is thick and smooth. Wrap well and freeze until solid. Allow to soften for 15 mins before scooping. Best eaten within a month.

I loved this recipe, but a tip for any who make it in the future, instead of 2 tablespoons of rose water i think there was a typo in the writing up of the recipe and i think it was supposed to be 2 teaspoons
