Makes 3 3/4 cups; 6 servings

Notes: For best flavor, use fully ripe, slightly soft fruit. If making sorbet up to 5 days ahead, let soften in the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a blender or food processor, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup lime juice. Add papayas, in batches if necessary, and whirl until smooth. Pour mixture as puréed into a bowl. Stir, taste, and if desired, add more sugar and lime juice.

Step 2

Nest bowl in ice and stir often until mixture is cold, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 3

Pour purée into an ice cream maker (minimum capacity 1 qt.). Freeze according to manufacturer's directions until sorbet is firm, dasher is hard to turn, or machine stops, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve, or freeze airtight up to 5 days.
