How to Make the Most Amazing Sorbet

The fabulous Simon from Matchbox shows us how to use an ice cream maker to make an incredible sorbet – perfect for making the smoked tomato sorbet in Frank’s masterclass.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fine lemon zest



  • Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over a medium – high heat
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer without stirring until the sugar dissolves (about 3 – 5 minutes) then cool completely and keep refridgerated until ready to use TIP: this mixture in called a simple sugar syrup and may be made ahead in large quantities to have on hand for making fresh sorbet and other desserts
  • When cool, add lemon juice and zest and stir to combine
  • Turn your Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker on and pour the lemon mixture into the freezer bowl through the ingredient spout
  • Mix until thickened (about 25 – 30 minutes) before serving
  • Optional: after 25 – 30 minutes, transfer mixture from Ice Cream Maker to the freezer for an extra 2 hours to ‘ripen’ before serving
