For every 1 c of juice, add 1/4 c sugar, so 2 c juice, 1/2 c sugar.
Cook sugar and just enough juice in a small saucepan until sugar is absorbed completely and you have a simple syrup. Remove from heat, add the rest of the juice, then chill. Churn in ice cream freezer. Serve, or allow to harden in the freezer first.
This is great, great flavor, etc, but I should've used a different recipe for our sorbet with limes. Everywhere I've looked on the internet has the lime juice diluted with something, water or other flavors, and the ratio for sugar to lime juice is 1:1, not 1:4. I will play around this week and see if I can't get a better result. Aaron was pretty disappointed. If you want to make a different sorbet, like orange, then follow this delicious recipe I've provided :)
