Lemon Sherbet Recipe
For lemon sherbet, you need to wash, peel and finely chop the lemon. Pour boiling water over lemon, add sugar and mix well. Cover the bowl with poured lemons and let it brew for 8-10 hours.
In a separate bowl, pour a small amount of boiling water over saffron, cover so that the aroma does not evaporate, and also leave to infuse.
Strain the lemon sherbet through a strainer into a pitcher and refrigerate. If you consume sherbet during the summer, you can add ice to it when serving. In winter, sherbet is served hot.
