I love orange sherbet.
Not that orange Sherbert!
I am talking about orange Sherbet ice cream!
I found this recipe on the Food Network site. It is from Alton Brown. I liked this recipe because it was simple and fresh ingredients. The sherbet wasn't as rich as the vanilla ice cream we made last weekend. This ice cream was light and fresh tasting. We really liked it. I would like to have a scoop of the sherbet with a scoop of the vanilla from last week - homemade creamcicle!
7 ounces sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice, approximately 2 to 3 pounds oranges
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups very cold whole milk
In the bowl of a food processor combine all of the ingredients except the milk and process until the sugar is dissolved, approximately 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and whisk in the milk. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator until the mixture reaches 40 degrees F or below, approximately 1 hour.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process until it is the consistency of soft serve ice cream. You may serve now or transfer to a lidded container and place in freezer until firm, approximately 3 hours.
