Fresh Orange Sorbet
This easy sorbet nets rave reviews from our staffers for two reasons. First, it's super easy to make; fresh squeezed orange juice, orange zest, sugar, and water are all you'll need. Plus, the orange flavor, much like French sorbets, is both intense and refreshing. Recipe:Fresh Orange Sorbet

Absolutely! Anytime I need lemon, lime or orange zest, I zest the entire fruit and freeze the extra in 1 teaspoon portions. Place the zest on a small square of plastic wrap and twist up the corners to form a purse-like enclose. Secure it with a twist tie and place the individual packets of zest together in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic freezer bag and store in the door of your freezer. It retains its flavor for about 2 months.
