The perfect blood orange sorbet

10 blood oranges
125g white sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Scrub two oranges well, then finely grate the zest. Roll each orange on the work surface to release the juice, then squeeze until you have 350ml juice, fishing out any seeds (I used nine in total, but as they vary in size, its wise to have some spare). Heat 100ml of the juice gently in a pan with the sugar, stirring to dissolve. Allow to cool slightly, then add the remaining juice and that of the lemon. Chill. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to instructions, or pour into a strong plastic box and put in the coldest part of the freezer. After 90 minutes it should have frozen round the edges – take it out and beat vigorously with a fork, electric whisk or in a food processor until you have a uniformly textured icy slush. Put back in the freezer and repeat at least twice more every 90 minutes, then freeze for at least another hour.
Eat as soon as possible for the best texture.
