Chunky Pineapple Sorbet

Chunky Pineapple Sorbet

Inspired by: Myrecipes.com

I had bought a pineapple with the knowledge that we were having friends over for dinner. However when their plans changed, it was too much for two of us to eat, and in the light of the fact that we were going away for the weekend, I wanted to use the pineapple so we didn't come home to fruit rotting in the refrigerator. 

Time Taken:
20 minutes preparation+7 hours freezing.

Number of Dirty Dishes:
Fork, medium sized bowl/saucepan/container which is suitable for freezing, measuring cup, tablespoon, knife, chopping board.

I used:
1 cup sugar
2 Tbs lemon juice
1 Pineapple

What I did:
In the medium sized bowl (which is suitable for freezing) dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice, and stir until combined. 
Skin and core pineapple and cut the remaining flesh into small pieces 1cm square, and add to the bowl. 
Mix with a fork and mash as much of the pineapple flesh as possible. 
For a smoother finish blend the pineapple, sugar and juice until pureed and then return to bowl. 
Cover bowl and freeze for 3 hours until it is frozen on the outside but still soft in the middle. 
Mash sorbet with a fork to break up the pineapple as much as possible and distribute the ice and then return to the freezer for 4 hours. 
Serve and Enjoy!

Comments after eating Pineapple sorbet:
YUM! This is delicious!

What I would do different:
Adding some fresh mint leaves in here would make a great flavor.
