Instructions

  1. To make the limoncello sorbet, place the sugar and water in a saucepan and warm gently over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves, then boil for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is slightly syrupy.
  2. Pour the syrup into a bowl and add the lemon juice, zest, limoncello and lemon extract. Cover, then chill the mixture for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream machine and fit the lid. Churn the sorbet until it starts to thicken ─ please refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for timings. It will have a soft texture when ready. Freeze in an airtight container until needed.
  4. To make the strawberry sorbet, place the sugar and water in a pan, heat gently to dissolve the sugar then turn up the heat and bring to the boil.
  5. Add the lime zest and juice and simmer gently for a few minutes until you have a light syrup. Remove from the heat and leave until completely cool.
  6. Place the strawberries and cold syrup into a food processor and blend to a puree. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine and freeze churn until a smooth, soft consistency is reached. Freeze in an airtight container until needed.
