Fruit Juice-sweetened ice cream/sherbet

kalidaemon Jun 27, 2008 02:51 PM

I've managed to find a way to make good fruit-juice sweetened pastries, pancakes, and waffles, but can't seem to find a workable ice cream/sherbet recipe. Does anyone have one that works for them? Is it even possible?

    I'm finding myself in the same boat and wondered if you've found any answers? I'm about to start experimenting...

      You need to find Cook's Illustrated's Fresh Fruit Sherbet recipes, and pick up David Lebovitz's book The Perfect Scoop. Absolutely amazing stuff.

        I make a sorbet with pear juice and cardamom - just warm the juice with cracked cardamom pods, strain and process. I'm sure you can just use any viscous, sweet fruit juice and use it to make sorbet - straight. I make pineapple sorbet by simplying pureeing the fresh pineapple and perhaps, add a spice of some sort.
