Watermelon Sorbetto

Watermelon Sorbetto (adapted from "The Perfect Scoop")

3 cups watermelon juice (puree completely in blender)
½ cup (100g) sugar
Big pinch of salt
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1. In a small, non-reactive pan heat ½ cup of watermelon juice with the sugar and salt, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
2. Remove from heat and combine with the remaining watermelon juice, lime juice.
3. Chill thoroughly (about an hour) then churn in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturers instructions.

Tip: David says “I find that I get about 3 cups of watermelon juice from a 1.5kg (3lb) chunk of watermelon. Cut away the skin and rind then cube the flesh, remove seeds and puree in a blender or processor."
Optional: you can add about 1 tbsp vodka and some mini chocolate chips (for "seeds") if you'd like, but I didn't try that)
