This is one of the best refreshing tasty sorbets. Excellent when served between courses. NOTE: This is an adopted recipe and Wikipedia says: "Sorbet (or sorbetto, sorbeto) is a frozen dessert made from iced fruit puree and other ingredients. The term "sherbet" is derived from the Turkish word for "sorbet", serbat which in turn comes from Arabic. Sorbet is a form of gelato that contains no milk, unlike ice cream. Sorbets may contain alcohol (which lowers the freezing temperature, resulting in a softer sorbet). Unlike ice cream, the machinery used whips almost no air into the sorbet, resulting in a dense and extremely flavorful product. This allows sorbet to match and sometimes exceed dairy-based gelato or ice cream for taste" so I have put this into the ZWT REGION: Middle East.
