  3. Once cooled, freeze in ice cream maker until firm. Place in sealable container and store in freezer until ready to use. Makes approximately 4 cups.
  4. When ready to serve, place a scoop of sorbet in a bowl and top with diced gingered watermelon.

Gingered Watermelon Topping:

  1. In a large bowl, combine diced watermelon, grated ginger and lime zest. Toss with clean hands to make sure everything is evenly distributed.
  2. Keep in refrigerator until ready to use. Can be made a few hours in advance.

*Granita Version:  If you don’t have an ice cream machine you can pour the liquid sorbet into a glass or metal 9×13 pan and place in the freezer. After 30 minutes it will start to freeze around the edges. Use fork to stir and mix. Continue to stir every 30 minutes until frozen. Scrape the mixture into fluffy crystals and place in a container and keep frozen till ready to serve.
