3 cups water
3 cups white sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
4 cups cubed seeded watermelon
Heat water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool. Place watermelon in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Whisk watermelon, lime juice and syrup together in a large bowl.
Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer sorbet to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, sorbet should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.
* Tip: This recipe is *really* sweet. If too sweet, go ahead and make your simple syrup as instructed, but only use 1 cup in the sorbet.
