Strawberry-Lemon Sorbet (adapted from smitten kitchen)

makes 1 1/2 quarts

1 lemon, seeded and chopped

2 cups sugar

2 pounds strawberries, hulled

juice of 1-2 lemons

Pulse chopped lemon and sugar in a food processor until pulverized. Add strawberries and process until pureed. Add the juice of 1-2 lemons, to taste. The lemon flavor should be intense but not overpowering.

Put mixture into a bowl and set in the fridge to chill to about 40 degrees; once chilled, transfer to your ice cream maker and churn until frozen.
