Lemon Orange Ice
We enjoy this treat on special occasions, like birthdays, or when we have lots of ice chips from ice fishing in winter. It has the sharp, tangy flavor of a sherbet but a creamier texture. My recipe originated years ago with my grandmother. It's her favorite ice cream, and I always think of her when I make it. She still likes serving it to all her many grandchildren!
