Orange sherbet!

I've got spring fever. I'm totally over this winter, but it's not quite springtime yet.

So when I got a bunch of oranges in my CSA box, I decided to make a very spring-y dish: fresh orange sherbet.

1/3 cup sugar
Grated zest of one orange
Pinch of salt
Fresh squeezed orange juice, from 6-7 oranges
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups cold whole milk

Mix everything together except for the milk. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved, about one minute. Whisk in the milk. Cover bowl and chill for 1-2 hours. Pour into your ice cream makes and process until it's the consistency of soft-serve. Put that in a lidded container and freeze until firm, around 3 hours.

So orangey and delicious!


  1. This sounds extremely yummy! How much does the orange juice measure out to be?
