Fruit symbolizing summer, the melon with its orange flesh and very fragrant flavor is a really good idea for a sorbet. As you have understood, this recipe uses the "Charentais" variety melon.

You do not have all these ingredients ? No problem. Forget the stabilizer if you do not have any at home. Replace simply dextrose, inverted sugar and powdered glucose by usual sugar (sucrose). The ice cream texture will not be perfect but you will still get a very good sorbet.
