Recipe Swap - Rockmelon Sorbet

This is great, so easy to make. I can't believe more people don't make it themselves. I don't have an icecream/sorbet maker or anything like that, I just make it ye olde fashioned way and the results are fantastic.

1 rockmelon
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
small segment of vanilla bean, seeds removed, or use vanilla extract
1 slice lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
icing sugar, for garnish
  1. Remove seeds from rockmelon, then scoop out all the flesh onto a sheet of plastic. Wrap the melon in the plastic and put it in the freezer. Leave it there until it is completely frozen.
  2. Prepare the syrup by placing the sugar, water, vanilla, lemon peel and salt into a saucepan, then bring to the boil and simmer for about five minutes. Chill in the fridge.
  3. Place the sugar syrup, lemon juice. and rockmelon into a food processor. Blend well, scraping down the sides occasionally. Put the mixture into a container then into the freezer.
  4. Freeze for several hours, beating it and scraping downt the edges about every 20-30 minutes for the first 1.5 hours to prevent icicles from forming, then less so after that.
This is fine in the freezer for a week or so, but in my house there is no way it would ever last that long!

This will not succeed in fact, that's what I suppose.
