    I dont have a machine either, but make loads of sorbets and ice creams. I use 2 air tight beakers, pour the mixture in there, pop in the freezer. Every hour, I take them out give them a good shake and stick them back in the freezer. After 3 /4 goes, then pour into dishes and freeze. Simples  -  16 Nov 2011


    Far too sweet for me, but I'm going to try it again with half the sugar. I do now have an ice cream maker (20 quid off amazon) and I'm trying all sorts... this recipe has definite potential! God help me, I'm gonna be a total lardarse! :D Many thanks  -  28 Apr 2012
