Watermelon Sorbet

1/2 cup sugar 
4 1/2 cups fresh pureed watermelon pulp, seeds removed. divided*
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice or lemon juice (your choice)
2 tablespoons Anisette Liqueur

* Puree watermelon in a food processor or blender.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, 1/2 cup watermelon juice, and salt; bring to a boil. Boil 30 to 45 seconds sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat and let stand approximately 10 minutes. If making ahead, store in refrigerator

To the remaining 4 cups pureed watermelon pulp, add sugar syrup, lemon juice, and Anisette Liqueur; stir until thoroughly blended.

NOTE: The Anisette (or any other type of alcohol) is the secret to a soft sorbet. Alcohol itself does not freeze and adding a little bit keeps the sorbet from doing the same.

Freezer Method - Pour into container, cover, and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it up with a fork and refreeze again. When frozen, place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.

NOTE: Can be prepared 3 days in advance. Cover and keep frozen.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
