1¼cuporange juicefreshly squeezed - about 4 oranges
Combine the water and sugar in a heavy bottomed medium-sized saucepan.
On medium/high heat, bring to a boil, stirring occasionally . This might take up to 10 minutes. Continue boiling for 5 more minutes.
Remove from heat and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
When the simple syrup is just about cooled, sqeeze the juice from the oragnes. If you use a cone juicer then you can save the empty halves for serving the finished sorbet.
Measure out 1¼ cup freshly sqeezed juice and add to the cooled simple syrup.
Pour into a 9x5 loaf pan and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours. Every 30 minutes stir the mixture with a spoon so that hard crystals don't form. Repeat for the next 3-4 hours until the sorbet becomes creamy and the hard icey crystals have dissapeared.
