Lavender Lemon Sorbet

2  cups water cups water
1/2 cup of water (for simple syrup) 
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp dried lavender flowers
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice - I used 7 small lemons

1. In a saucepan mix 1/2 a cup of water with the sugar.  Heat on medium heat until the sugar has dissolved, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat and add the dried lavender flowers - let steep for 15-20 minutes.  Then refrigerate mixture till completely cooled.

2.  Strain sugar, lavender, lemon syrup mixture in a medium bowl to remove most of the lavender (this is be thick).  Mix in the 2 cups water and lemon juice until well combined.  

3.  Pour mixture into your ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.  Store the mixture in a freezer safe container.  Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
