Thank you all very much. I've printed out the recipes.

Mr HB went to 2 liquor stores and they didn't carry any limoncella at all. Guess I'll put it on my list for tomorrow and head into the big city.

Giada makes it look so good.

It will get pretty hard in the freezer, but softens quickly when you take it out. Here's one I served to cjs last Christmas with a smidgeon of raspberry sorbet on top:


* Exported from MasterCook *
Lemon Rosemary Sorbet
Recipe By :Fine Cooking Magazine Aug/Sep '96
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts-Ices
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup fresh rosemary -- finely chopped
1 1/3 cups fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons vodka (I sub Limoncello)
1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water. Stir until mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add rosemary, cover, and let stand approximately 10 minutes or until cool.
2. Place a fine strainer over a large bowl and pour syrup mixture through (straining out the rosemary leaves). Add lemon juice and vodka to the strained syrup mixture; stir until thoroughly blended.
NOTE: The vodka (or any other type of alcohol) is the secret to a soft sorbet. Alcohol itself does not freeze and adding a little bit keeps the sorbet from doing the same. Vodka is excellent to use because it doesn't affect the taste.
ICE CREAM MAKER - Transfer mixture to ice cream maker, process according to manufacturer's instructions.
FREEZER METHOD - Pour into container, cover, and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it up with a fork and refreeze again. When frozen, place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.
NOTE: Can be prepared 3 days in advance. Cover and keep frozen.

This is the recipe I use for most of my sorbets.

Basic Sorbet
Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts-Ices
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup simple Sugar Syrup
1 1/2 cups juice
3 tablespoons Limoncello
Mix chilled simple syrup and juice together; add Limoncello. Stir to combine and chill thoroughly. You can chill in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes but not long enough for any ice crystals to form; then stir thoroughly and pour into the running ice cream machine. It will reach the soft sorbet consistency much quicker.
