Amazing sorbet! I've made 3 times now and the last time was with frozen organic strawberries. Using the frozen strawberries it came out much sweeter than if using fresh. If using frozen, cut back on the sugar but not the water. I didn't use a ice cream machine. It freezes rock hard if left in the freezer overnight so you have to have patience and let it sit out for 30 minutes or so before eating if it's hard as a rock. Next time I will try substituting Triple Sec or Cointreau for part of the orange juice. Maybe using a little flavored alcohol will prevent it from freezing solid.

Perfectly simple! I wanted a special treat for the 4th of July and this was easy and delicious. Fresh strawberries are very expensive where I live, so to double the recipe I used 2 16oz bags of frozen strawberries and I cut the sugar down to 1 1/4. I didn't have oj, so I used the juice of 1 lemon instead and it turned out very nicely sweet. I will probably use just 1 cup of sugar next time, but of course it depends on how sweet your strawberries are as well as your personal tastes. My son says it tastes just like fragola gelato- a better compliment I couldn't imagine!

My very first sorbet and it was no fail. Not only that but it was amazing. Within the 2 days I had to make 2 double batches! I'd love to try this with raspberries.

This was my first attempt at Sorbet and I have to say, we both liked it very much. I liked it more than my husband because I like Strawberries, but it was just perfect!! We will be making this again in the summer.

I LOVE THIS! It is so easy to make and tastes great. I wouldn't change a thing about it. This recipe has quickly become a staple for me- I make it almost weekly since it's so easy and only takes 25 minutes in my Cuisinart ice cream maker. My husband and I love it! Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!

This was so good. I put the sorbet in a freezer bag and squished it around while it was freezing and it just turned out great. I save it for a special treat. Thank you for posting. Acually I'm making more today as I have a lot of strawberries.

I love this sorbet! My mom loves it too. Both my mom and I think the secret is the orange juice. Thanks Judy from Hawaii for posting this recipe!:)

I made this today with a slight change. I added one 6 oz container of strawberry yogurt and it was yummy. Not really a sorbet with the yogurt but very smooth and flavorful.

Loved it. Wouldn't try to make this freeze any more than the recipe calls for, as another comment suggests. Comes out rock hard.
