      i found this to be really sweet and pretty slushy. I think that perhaps I should have reduced the sugar and increased the lemon juice and water. (As backwards as that sounds, the higher the sugar to water ratio, the more slushy the mixture will be because sugar is what prevents the water from freezing hard.)

      I found this sorbet to be excellent. However, I might respecfully suggest that the author review the Servings section. It shows this recipe producing a 1/2 gallon (2 quarts). I couldn't figure out how 4-1/2 cups (1-1/4 pints of liquid) could possibly produce that much sorbet no matter how much air was whipped into it. Well, it can't. I ended up doubling the amounts on my second go round and actually produced 1/2 gallon in my 2 quart Cuisinart ice cream maker. Minor quibble.
