    This was taken from a amish cook book and I copied word for word. It stopped and so did I. LOL! I guess I should of also been reading. It didn'y say to freeze but my thought is just put it in a container after completing the directions and freeze until firm. So that is what I did when I made the peach sherbert. It looks like sherbert, it spoons like sherbert and the taste was wonderful. You do not need a machine to make it. no extra mixing when half frozen like some ice creams. just throw in the freezer and come back later.
