A cold treat this time of year might seem like a curveball, but there are certain fall flavors that are made for sorbet, like concord grapes, rosemary, and cranberries to name a few. Using 100 percent juice rather than cooking fruit is a welcome shortcut, and you don't have to wait for it to cool, so you can get it churning ASAP. Our fruit-plus-herb formula is ripe for riffing. Here, grape and rosemary announce autumn, guava and basil tease the tropics, and cranberry nods to the harvest.
