Cantaloupe SorbetCuisinart Original Recipe
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
2-1/2 pounds cantaloupe cubes
2/3 cup tangerine or orange juice
1 tablespoon corn syrup
Place sugar and water in a 1-1/2 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, reduce heat to medium and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved to make a simple syrup -- you will have 11/4 cups simple syrup. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely.
Place the melon cubes in a food processor fitted with the metal "s" blade.
Pulse to chop, then process until completely puréed -- you will have about 6 cups cantaloupe purée. Stir in the tangerine juice, corn syrup and cooled simple syrup. Cover and chill for 2 hours or longer.
Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. The sorbet will have a soft, slushy texture, similar to a freshly scooped Italian ice. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the sorbet to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
