My mother-in-law,Betty, made this out of a 1950's orange juice advertisement she got in the mail. I updated it by using an ice cream freezer and not freezer trays. This sherbet is easy and so cool and refreshing on a hot day. Only has 4 ingredients !

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one of the creamiest orange sherbets I have ever enjoyed! Great for kids of all ages.

Ingredients

1 can(s)
evaporated milk 12oz can
1 can(s)
6 oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate,undiluted
1/2 c
sugar
1/8 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Open evaporated milk and put in freezer until ice crystals begin to form around the edges.
2
In a separate bowl combine last 3 ingredients and have them ready to add to whipped milk.
3
Turn the iced milk into well chilled mixer bowl and whip with beaters until stiff.
4
Add the last three ingredients very slowly, 1 TBS at a time to whipped milk.

I made it last night and got mixed up . Instead of one can of orange juice I used two =D Lol . I decided to use powdered sugar instead of granulated so it would dissolve much quicker . It worked great . I believe it helped to add a lot of extra fluff since I put an extra can of OJ in it. My daughter and granddaughter love it. It ended up making almost a gallon of sherbet . Thank goodness I had saved a square plastic ice cream container just for this recipe . ( I put it in the freezer too before adding the sherbet ) It holds one gallon /one pint . I didn't use an ice cream freezer either . I just used my electric mixer and it turned out PERFECT !! I plan to try purple grape juice next time . Thanks bunches for the recipe !
