Unlike ice cream, store-bought sherbet is usually third-rate. If you want a really good fruit sherbet, do you have to make it yourself? YES. In our house lemon is our favorite, but you can use this basic recipe and substitute fresh squeezed lime or orange juice, or use fresh raspberries (YUM). Since getting an ice cream maker with the freezer insert, we make sherbet weekly. We like the sherbet better than regular ice cream and it's a 'little' healthier! If using a canister-style (freezer insert) ice cream machine, freeze the cannister for at least 12 hours, or preferably, overnight. If the canister insert is not thoroughly frozen, the sherbet will not freeze beyond a slushy consistency. Be sure to use freshly squeezed (not bottled) lemon juice. You can substitute vodka for the Triple Sec if desired, but the Triple Sec adds a more citrusy flavor. Prep time includes juice chilling time.
