Lime Ice

Serves 1 Ingredients Methods

Thinly pared rind of 3 limes

450ml of water

250g of granulated sugar

Finely grated rind and juice of 3 limes

2 egg whites To Decorate:

Thin wedges of lime

Small sprigs of mint

Put the lime rind and water into a solid based pan; stir in the sugar and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Strain the lime flavoured syrup and stir in the grated lime rind and lime juice. Pour into a shallow container and freeze until “slusht”. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, but not dry and fold lightly but thoroughly into the semi-set sorbet. Re-freeze until the sorbet is firm enough to scoop. Serve in glass dishes, decorated with wedges of lime and sprigs of mint.
