Blackberry Daiquiri Sherbet
The summer I decided to try making sherbet, which is one of my favorites, blackberries were in season in my mom's garden. I love the flavor of daiquiris, and the two blend together beautifully! —Shelly L. Bevington, Hermiston, Oregon

- 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
- 2 tablespoons lime juice

Test Kitchen Tip
Substituting rum for the extract might seem like a fun idea but the alcohol will keep your dessert from freezing solid.
