Sad to say this did not work for me. I followed the recipe carefully and used lovely chocolate, finished it in my ice cream maker. The result was overly sweet and grainy.


  1. Put all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over low heat.
  2. Cook stirring frequently, until the mixture has reached a boil-- this can take 10 minutes or so.
  3. Then stir without stopping and PAY ATTENTION: this will bubble furiously!
  4. Boil for 2 minutes, then pour the mixture into a bowl.
  5. Set the bowl into an ice-water bath.
  6. Allow the mixture to chill, stirring now and then.
  7. Freeze the sorbet in your ice-cream maker, following instructions.
  8. You can serve the sorbet directly, or pack it into an airtight container and freeze until needed.
  9. Note: I never use an ice-cream maker, just put it into a Tupperware container suitable for the freezer, and scrape to serve.
