Sub-Lime Fruit Sherbet

You know we don’t go very long, around here, in the summer without making a batch of SOME kind of ice cream. Well, this one was actually a bit of an accident–to be honest. We were happily preparing to make our scrumptious Peach Sherbet when we realized that we didn’t have any peach jello. Huge crisis. Wow. Severe lack of preparation skills. Well, being the sturdy mountain women that we were we bravely forged ahead and use lime Jello…instead.

Oh.My.Word.

It was fabulous–and so we began to daydream about what it would be like with, say… pineapple, or mandarin oranges, or raspberries even. You’ll have to try a different fruit and let us know if it tastes as lovely in real life as it does in my imagination.

Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.
