This easy sherbet has the rich, creamy texture of ice cream; it's best eaten within a day or two of being made. An ice cream maker is unnecessary, but if you prefer to use one, just follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Sherbet is lighter than ice cream and richer than sorbet. It's made from a frozen mix of sweetened fruit juice and water that's often fortified with milk, cream, egg whites, syrup, or gelatin to impart a smooth, soft consistency.
In Season: Peak season for tangerines lasts from October to April. They are occasionally available during the rest of the year but are best enjoyed in season. What to Look For: A good tangerine is firm or slightly soft, and feels heavy for its size. Choose tangerines with smooth, bright-orange, unblemished skin. How to Store: Tangerines will keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
