Frozen Clementine Sorbet

Before You Start

When scooping the flesh from the clementine shells, get as much of the membrane as possible. You need 3 3/4 cups total liquid when finished; make up any deficiency with orange juice. Store leftover sorbet in an airtight container in the freezer.

Ingredients

12 clementines
1 1/4 cups orange juice (or enough to make 3 3/4 cups total liquid)
juice of two lemons
1 cup superfine sugar
7 tablespoons water

Instructions

1. Slice off the tops of 8 clementines to create lids. Place the lids on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
2. Use the tip of a knife to loosen the flesh of the clementines. Carefully scoop out the flesh and place in a mixing bowl while keeping the shells intact. Place the shells on the baking sheet with the lids, and put them in the freezer.
3. Place the sugar and water in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves and liquid is clear. Stir occasionally. Turn heat up to medium and boil sugar/water for 3 minutes without stirring. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
4. Stir in lemon juice. Zest the remaining 4 clementines, and add the zest and juice from the 4 clementines to the lemon syrup.
5. Process the scooped-out clementine flesh in a food processor or blender. Press the processed flesh through a sieve to extract as much of the juice as possible. Add 3 3/4 cups juice to the saucepan.
6. Place the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn until it expands and holds its shape. Carefully pack the frozen shells with the sorbet, overfilling a bit in the center. Place the lid on top, and gently push down.
7. Return to the freezer until the sorbet has frozen completely. Move from the freezer to the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before serving.
