Best Ice Cream/Sorbet: Fresh Orange Sorbet

This recipe first ran in the January/February 1990 issue, but its pure freshness is still popular among the staff today. A simple recipe yields intense flavor, thanks to generous amounts of orange juice and zest, with a bit of lemon juice for sweet-sour balance.

Pantry Checklist:

  • Oranges
  • Sugar
  • Lemons
