5 Easy, Delicious Sorbet Recipes: Honeydew Melon and Tarragon Sorbet

<em>Serves 8</em>
<br />
<br />
Melon and tarragon make a striking summer flavor combination. In this recipe, the base is not strained because I prefer to leave the small flecks of green leaf in the pale green sorbet. The riper the melon, the better this sorbet will be.</p>
<p>• ¼ cup tarragon leaves, stems removed<br />
• 1 cup fine sugar<br />
• ½ cup water<br />
• ¼ cup fresh lemon juice<br />
• 3 cups very ripe honeydew melon flesh</p>
<p>1. Puree tarragon leaves, sugar, water and lemon juice in blender on high speed. Add melon and blend until you have a smooth liquid.<br />
<br />
2. Freeze immediately in ice cream maker until slushy-firm. Scoop into storage container and freeze until firm enough to scoop.</p>
