Lime Sorbet Palate Cleanser
Last night we had a wine tasting at our home. Wine tasting can be really tricky unless you have a palate cleanser between courses. I have found Lemon or Lime Sorbet to be the best. Because of my lime tree that never quits... I made Lime this time, but you can use the same recipe and substitute Lemon for lime to get Lemon Sorbet. To use affectively you just take a teaspoon in your mouth in between wines or food courses.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
In medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, sugar, and lime juice to a simmer.
Cover the pan, lower the heat slightly, and cook for about 3 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool the mixture to room temperature. Stir in the lime zest. Chill the mixture for 2 hours. Pour into icecream maker and run it for 30 minutes.
Scoop and serve.
