      Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest from the oranges. Bring the sugar and 1 1/4 cups water to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the orange zest and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly. Squeeze the juice from the oranges and stir into the syrup, along with the orange blossom water.

      To freeze the sorbet without an ice cream machine, pour the mixture into a metal baking dish. Freeze for at least 4 hours, until almost frozen solid. Mash with a fork to break up any ice crystals, then freeze until solid. If using an ice cream machine, follow the manufacturer’s directions. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until ready to use.
