“This is my own recipe for orange sherbet. Some of the ingredient amounts are a little odd because I wanted to get the taste just right. This recipe makes 1 gallon of sherbet. It tastes best after it's been frozen for a day or two. Notes: 1/3 ounce of gelatin is equal to 1 and a half envelopes (.25 oz. size)unflavored gelatin. Also, If you add the lemon juice and orange juice concentrate to the milk mixture while it is still warm it will cause it to curdle. Wait until it is completely cold before adding the lemon juice and orange juice concentrate.”
