Fresh Lemon Sorbet

This lemon sorbet is insanely good. More importantly, it is easy to make in your ice cream or frozen yogurt maker.

Fresh Lemon Sorbet

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1-1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped lemon zest
Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  reduce heat to low and simmer without stirring until the sugar dissolves, about 3-5 minutes.  Cool completely.  This is called a simple syrup, and may be made ahead in larger quantities to have on hand for making fresh lemon sorbet. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
When cool, add the lemon juice and zest; stir to combine.  Turn the machine ON, pour the lemon mixture into freezer bowl through the ingredient spout and mix until thickened, about 25-30 minutes.
