Meyer Lemon Sorbet

I still had some Meyer Lemons to use so I decided to try out a sorbet. I have been really interested in sorbets lately, but I am not sure why. They just taste so pure and fruity.

This sorbet is no exception. The flavor of Meyer Lemons is hard to explain. They definitely are a lemon but there are hints of mandarin or tangerine that really mellow the tartness. I find the flavor absolutely delightful. I'm wondering why it has taken me so long to discover this tasty citrus.

Sorbet is so light and just a few spoonfuls can really satisfy you. Speaking of a few spoonfuls- I think I will head to the freezer and have a few!

Here is the recipe for Meyer Lemon Sorbet from Simply Recipes
