    KLHquilts's Note:

    I adapted this from a recipe I got off of the Cuisinart web site; this is a little more tart, with a little less sugar than originally called for.

      Made this last night as a palate cleanser between courses, and it was a huge hit. I added 2 things, dried tarragon and grapefruit vodka to prevent it from freezing solid. I made it without an ice cream machine and processed the frozen mix in my food processor. It came out beautifully creamy and the perfect consistency. The tarragon was a really nice addition too. We had it after a really garlicky pesto and by the time we were sitting down to eat the next course, the sorbet had completely gotten rid of the garlic. This one's a keeper!

      My Mom used to make grapefruit sorbet years ago and I had lost the recipe. I am so glad I found this one. It is so refreshing and a real palate cleanser. I love it! Thank you so much.

      We really enjoyed this sorbet. It has a lovely taste of grapefruit and is not too sweet. The lemon juice really gives it a bright flavor. Thank you for sharing.
