1¼ cup sugar
6-7 cups fresh seedless watermelon chunks (about half of the melon)
3 tbsp. fresh lime juice (approximately 3 1/2 medium-sized limes) I usually use add more to taste.
In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved. Place in a bowl to completely cool.
Put the watermelon chunks simple syrup and the lime into a blender or food processor and puree.
Pour the watermelon mixture into the freezer bowl of your ice cream maker. The sorbet will have soft serve texture. You can enjoy right away or put the sorbet into an airtight container and place in the freezer until firm for about 2 hours.
