Cuisinart® Tangy Citrus Sorbet

This is the first time I used my new Cuisinart® Ice Cream, Yogurt & Sorbet Maker. The recipe came straight from the Cuisinart website. It’s really simple.
Juice Zest & Simple Syrup

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium high heat; cook until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool completely. Stir in zests and juices. I used lemon, lime and orange juice and zest.sorbet2

Freeze in Cuisinart® Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet Maker for 20 to 25 minutes. Tangy Citrus Sorbet

It is very tart. I think the next time I would use a little less sugar. I also let it set in a glass bowl in the freezer for several hours before serving. It makes a very refreshing ending to a meal. Or if you really want to be “fancy”, serve before the main course to “cleanse the pallet”.

My next attempt at frozen dessert will be Salted Caramel Ice Cream.
