Dissolve the gelatin with part of the water by heating and stir till dissolved. Pick the thyme leaves and chop finely, mince the orange peel finely, place all in the pot, and stir. Add the sake, glucose, and sorbet syrup and stir well. Place in a shallow pan and place in the freezer. Every few hours scrape with a fork until mixture is fully frozen.

Dungeness Crab:
