Delicious! I halved the recipe but otherwise, only changed the final two steps. Instead of waiting until completely frozen and then blending again, I used a fork to scrape through it a couple times during the freezing process. This probably affected the texture a little, making it more like a granita than a sorbet, but I didn't mind that so much. The taste was still excellent! Thanks Syd :) [Made for PAC Spring 2011]
Boy, a Made in America recipe......sweeeeeeeet! (Blending completely takes care of the seed problem.)
This is so delicious and very easy to make. I made a half recipe on Thanksgiving afternoon when weather kept us from going to our original destination and we had a lovely dinner with just our DS and his girlfriend. It was our dessert appetizer! I found the mix to be a little sweet and orange dominant at first so I added a little cranberry juice concentrate and that made it just right. After cooking and blending I cooled the mix and froze it in my gelato machine. Once mixed it was fairly soft but just letting it sit in the machine with the motor going , but not the dasher, it harden up quite quickly. The sorbet has a nice balance of sweet and tart and is a beautiful color. The one thing I would do differently would be to strain the mix before the freezing, we thought it would be even better without the pith. Thanks Sydney Mike for another wonderful recipe!
