Posting this for ZWT II as taken from "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book". Blood Oranges earn their name from the Dark red flesh. They are common thoughout the Mediterranean region and are becoming readily available in the United States. The cooking time depends on how Fast your Ice Cream Machine freezes. Sometimes I bypass the Ice Cream Machine altogeather, and simply put the sorbet in a freezer safe container, freeze it and then set it out about 10 to 15 minutes prior to using it...this softens it just enough to scoop.
