This yields more than a standard takeaway container - which I think is 750mL. So I'm guessing it would make closer to 800 or 850mL. When I made it, I found it a little too strong - I might use more water next time, or at least less peel! (My housemates thought it was good, though?). This is how I actually made it, based on this recipe. Well, a 'fixed' version - the first try resulted in cold lime cordial, rather than sorbet - leading to the conclusion the core was not cold enough. 

2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 cup lime juice
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of one lime

Cool the core of ice-cream maker for at least18h beforehand, on coldest freezer setting.
On the stove, dissolve sugar into water
Stir in the zest, and boil, then take off the heat. 

Stir in the lime juice, and refrigerate (at least one hour, we did overnight). 

Use ice-cream maker to make sorbet (or do it manually). 

This defrosts very quickly, so store quickly, and eat quickly!

I read the comments on this piece. It was totally worthwhile. One of the OPs responses was this:

"Uh, Lucy? Conscription is gone from the USA. Haven’t had a draft in nearly 40 years. That’s a classic men’s rights activist red herring, undercutting the other points. And the “women and children first” policy is one of chivalry designed by men, not women.

And it is men who devised the social rules that leave men choosing suicide, when men are victims of violence, it is almost always at the hands of other men, and men who generally run the economy that has left so many men unemployed and under-employed. If it’s misandry, it’s misandry that’s internalized by men and not foisted on them by women. The suffering is real. But the cause wears a male face."

And reading My Big, Fat Photo Spoof was great. 

Oh, and Portal is free on Steam until the 20th. Of course, I got it, and it doesn't work with my computer. I told it to try anyway, with the amusing results including rotating the display on my screen (and the functioning of the mouse) sideways.

Well, it is a video, but I liked it too.


Well, I couldn't work out how to make it embed. :(
