I usually get Edy's WholeFruit sorbet - this may change that. It was fantastic! VERY flavorful, and really not hard at all to make! I used mostly limes (4-5) with one lemon for variety. It does take a little whwile to set up (either that, or I just have my freezer set too warmly), but that ust means I should have started earlier. I served this as the lemon sorbet in Dancer's Mixed Berry Compote with Lemon Sorbet - it made a fatastic, very flavorful dessert with no fat! Definitely a keeper - Thanks, Dancer!
