This sorbet was amazing and incredibly sweet. In fact, if using great melons, it's probably best to skip the honey all together and rely on the natural sugar from the fruit. The taste is fabulous, it's a very refreshing treat, and it's almost too easy to make. So easy, in fact, that I managed to have a huge kitchen fiasco. As I was putting my blender jar on the counter, it slipped out of my hand and dropped on the counter, and the bottom ring broke. The food processor worked fine for this, but I was momentarily upset that I was going to have to replace my ancient blender that I inherited from my parents. Luckily the crisis has been averted, as the replacement that I ordered arrived yesterday and actually fits! Perhaps I need to test it with more sorbet??

1 cantaloupe (or whatever you want to call it), cut into chunks
juice of one lime
2 Tbsp honey
Combine ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. Makes about 1 1/2 quarts.
