Fresh Lemon Sherbet
Why This Recipe Works
The perfect sherbet recipe is a cross between sorbet and ice cream, containing fruit, sugar, and dairy but no egg yolks. We found no need for extra ingredients such as egg whites, gelatin, and corn syrup in our sherbet recipe. For bright flavor, we processed fruit zest and sugar together in a food processor. We added some alcohol for smoothness and whipped heavy cream for a lighter texture, and prepared the sherbet in an ice cream maker to get an even texture.
