To Make By Hand

  1. Place into a deep, lidded freezer-proof container and freeze for about 2 hours until the mixture becomes slushy. Remove from the freezer and beat with a whisk or fork to break up the crystals and return to the freezer. Repeat this twice more to ensure the sorbet forms small even crystals resulting in a smooth end product.

To Make by Ice-cream Machine

  1. Transfer to an ice-cream maker and process as per manufacturers instructions until the mixture is smooth and almost frozen. Transfer to a 3-cup-capacity lidded freezer-proof container, seal and place in the freezer. Use within 4-5 days.
