Fresh Strawberry Sorbet

Since we have been eating out a lot lately, I thought it would be nice to make a light strawberry sorbet from the batch of strawberries I have in the fridge. Used this recipe from Bon Appetit.

Make a sugar syrup using 2 cups water and 1 cup sugar. Boil for 5 mins til sugar dessolves. Add 1/4 cup fresh orange juice, 1/4 cup fresh lime juice to the sugar mixture, stir and chill for 2 hours in a covered bowl.

Puree 1 quart cleaned and hulled strawberries in a food processor til smooth. Add chilled sugar/orange/lime mixture into ice cream maker (I used my 2 quart ice cream maker), and 25 mins. later, I have fresh strawberry sorbet!
If you don't have a ice cream maker, place the mixture into a shallow container like a pyrex 9x13, and place in freezer, stirring with a fork every hour til set, about 6 hours.
