Cut the oranges in half, squeeze the juice out using a citrus juicer or a reamer, carefully saving the scooped out peels to be used a serving bowls. Put these peels in the freezer.
Add sugar / honey / maple syrup or any sweetener. Add salt, lemon juice. Mix well.
Transfer the juice in a glass or an ice-cream container. Cover well. Freeze it for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, remove from the freezer, scrape it a bit with the fork, it should break down into pieces. Give it a quick whizz in a food-processor/blender to make it smooth, but not for too long as the heat of the food processor might start melting the sorbet.
If you feel the sorbet melted a bit while in food processor, it's ok to put it back in freezer for a little bit again, before serving.
Serve it in the cute orange peel bowls or regular bowls. Garnish with a sprig of mint. Enjoy!
It is best to put the serving bowls in freezer, prior to serving the sorbet, so that when served, it doesn't melt quickly.
You can also dissolve the sugar in a little bit of juice on a stove top.
If you just want to use the fork to scrape it without using a food-processor, you can still make it - it would be more like a granita, with slightly coarser texture.
This recipe can be made with any citrus fruits or berries or any other fruits like mangoes, peaches etc.
The sugar need to be adjusted based on the taste and how sweet or sour the fruit is.
I did not add any water, but if you want, you can. You can also add club soda if you like.
