NOTES : In the freezer, sorbet gets very hard. To serve, thaw partially,
break into chunks, and beat to a slush with a mixer.

To freeze sorbets without an ice cream maker:

Pour the cooled sorbet mixture into a stainless steel bowl, and place in
the freezer. Let freeze until you have a 2-inch border of ice around the
edge of the bowl typically this takes 1 1/2 hours or so then remove
and scrape the frozen parts into the liquid middle, beating well with a
whisk (or even an electric beater, if you want a very smooth texture).
Repeat, freezing this time around for about 30 to 50 minutes. Repeat 1 or 2
times more, or until it is of a consistency where you can scoop it loosely
into a ball or oval.
