MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2013

"Its really really REALLY good. I love the blood oranges and the zest especially. The addition of the pomegranate seeds I think is a must."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2013

"Sounds like a winner to me. Can't wait to try it. To get the seeds out of a Pomegranate just cut in half croswise, take a wooden spoon and hit the outside several times. They will all pop out. Do the same with the other half. Enjoy!!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2013

"I love sorbets and would really like to try this recipe, but I do not have an ice cream maker. Is it possible to make this in the freezer and then put it in the blender?"
