Watermelon Sorbet Recipe

Watermelon Sorbet Recipe

After scooping out the watermelon for this pretty pink sorbet, I freeze the rind shell to use as a serving bowl for the scoops. We also put out bowls of chocolate chips and jimmies so our guests can sprinkle on their own "seeds".—Heide Grable, Raleigh, North Carolina
