Try this refreshing summer sherbet this Memorial Day weekend:
Tangy and Tart Lime Sherbet
1 cup sugar
1 package unflavored Knox gelatin
2 cups whole or 2% milk
2/3 cup fresh lime juice (6-7 limes)
1 tsp. grated lime peel
3 cups half and half
10 drops of green food coloring (optional)
Mix sugar and gelatin in a bowl. Turn on your stove to medium heat and heat up milk close to a boil, constantly stirring to avoid burning the bottom. Add mixture to gelatin-sugar mixture. Stir until fully dissolved. Using a grater, grate the skin of a lime to make one teaspoon of lime peel. Squeeze 2/3 cup of lime juice into a small bowl. Add juice and lime peel to your milk-gelatin-sugar mixture. Finally, add the 3 cups of half and half and 10 drops of food coloring. Pour into ice cream maker. If the consistency is not as frozen as you’d like, place the finished product into the freezer for a few hours to harden. Scoop into ice cream glasses and garnish as desired.
