A touch of sweet white wine and citrus makes this lovely pear sorbet so refreshing. You can use canned pears when fresh ones aren't available. And lime juice is a nice substitute for lemon.— Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri

"I had a box of pears that had become overripe. I made a double recipe of the sorbet to try and use them up.The flavor is fantastic. I used a Riesling for the wine, which wasn't as sweet as I had planned. I like it anyway. I'd like to try it again with some other German white wines."
