This is a light, fresh tasting dessert that is very quick and easy to make. It is also REALLY yummy done with lemons instead of limes. It fits perfectly into a small ice cream freezer.
Fresh Lime Sherbet
1 ¼ c. sugar
2 c. half & half
1/3-1/2 c. fresh squeezed lime juice (according to your taste -I use 1/2 c)
2 TBSP. grated lime peel (zest)
2 drops green food coloring
Mix until sugar is dissolved. Freeze in 1 qt. ice cream freezer.
(If you have a food processor - I put the lime zest and sugar together and process for about 2 minutes. It makes the sugar and lime zest very fine - without any stringy pieces)
