  • To scoop out the lemons

    Cut a 2 cm lid off the top of each lemon.
  • Carefully loosen the flesh from the lemons using a knife, empty into a bowl. Cover and freeze the lemon skins and lids for approx. 4 hrs. or overnight.
  • Mash the flesh with a fork, pass through a sieve into a measuring cup (produces approx. 100 ml of juice).
  • Sorbet

    Bring the water and sugar to the boil in a pan, then reduce the heat and simmer for approx. 2 mins., leave to cool.
  • Grate the lemon zest and squeeze out the juice. Finely grate the ginger, add the lemon zest and juice to the syrup along with the ginger and reserved lemon juice.
  • To freeze

    Pour the lemon syrup into a wide stainless steel bowl, freeze the mixture for approx. 3 hrs., stirring thoroughly 4 times.
  • Transfer the sorbet to the frozen lemon skins, freeze for a further 2 hrs. Serve with the lemon lids.
  • Tip:

    Cover and store the remainder of the sorbet in the freezer. Keep for approx. 2 weeks.
