Sorbets for Summer

I know, I know, it's been a while . I could make excuses - college , been busy , lalalala - but honestly I was just being lazy. My first year ends in two days, its pretty iconic and whats even better is -Summer Holidays!!
With the temperatures rising beyond 40 and my friends refusing to step out in the open its gonna be a blast*hint -sarcasm*. But seriously who cares ?

 I LOVE summer.Despite of the heat and sweat and drowsiness and occasional hatred towards everything that exists, favorite season of all time .And guess what, this summer I rediscovered an old flame . WATERMELON( What ? Were you expecting a human being or something?)

What's even better than watermelon , you ask ? Frozen watermelon.
 Actually frozen anything when you're morbidly dehydrated , but lets start with the watermelon okay?

The Verdict: It's comforting, like ice cream on a hot summer day .Oh wait - It is ice cream on a hot summer day :)

Watermelon Sorbet


1/2 Watermelon - diced
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tsp rock salt
5-6 crushed peppercorns
Juice of 1 lemon


  • Boil the sugar in a quarter cup of water until dissolved
  • Puree the watermelon . Don't mind the seeds
  • Mix everything together and pour in cups or glasses.
  • Throw in the freezer.
  • Stir it every 30 minutes or don't .I can't tell you how to live your life
  • It'll be done in about 90 minutes.
Hold the cold comfort in your hands to thaw a little bit, or let your tongue get stuck to the ice. What's life without a need to act uncivilized?
