Orange Sherbet

Recipe by cuisinebymae

A delightful treat on a hot day. For variation, try substituting other flavours of jello and kool-aid. As my ice-cream machine is not large, it will not quite hold this whole recipe. I put the excess into a small container and freeze it, stirring a couple times. Freezing time is not included in this recipe because of differences in various ice-cream machines.

Absolutely lovely and so easy. My grandkids now think their "Papa" is some kind of magician. One note of warning: The recipe says this makes 1-1/4 quarts, but running the EXACT recipe in my Cuisinart two quart machine for 30 minutes (manufacturer's recommendation) actually produces 2-1/4 quarts. That's okay, as I am "forced" to eat the excess cup, as I have no 1 cup freezing containers. ;<{D
