I tried this recipe with lime juice and found that there was too much grated rind. Maybe my orange and lime were especially big. Another recipe I have for lemon ice calls for 2 teaspoons which is about right.
I made this using Splenda for the sugar to lower the sugar content as much as possible. As I didn't want the grated peel pieces in the finished ice I added them, simmered the mix for a few mins and then strained them out for a smooth finished ice. It came out wonderfully on this summer day, very refreshing and yummy.
Excellent recipe. Used as a sorbet course at our New Year's Eve dinner - refreshing and universally well received. Very good for our traveling guests watching their alcohol consumption! Note: I had this in the freezer for 2 months before consuming.
This is just wonderful. I'm so glad you posted it. I made it first as the recipe is written and then with lime juice and crushed strawberries. Thank you so much for posting. I'm going to be eating alot of this. :)
