Joey's Fruit Juice Sorbet

 Lately I've been turning to delicious ice cold fruit juices instead of carbonated soft drinks to quench a thirst. Whenever I go to the grocery store, my cart fills with several of my favorite kinds of juice, and of course I always try a new juice flavor if I happen to see it. I also like to combine different juices together. As I was drinking an ice cold glass of Pom Wonderful and orange juice, I thought "Wouldn't it be awesome if this was frozen?" Well, there's only one way to find out!! And let me just tell you....the answer to that question is a big fat YES!! So then I tried it with other juices. The apple was big hit with my friend Denny and I must admit that it's my personal favorite as well. It's so flavorful and frosty! It's just the thing for a warm day, or as a palate cleanser between courses during your next elegant full course dinner! Enjoy!

4 cups fruit juice, (apple, orange, pomegranate, mango, blueberry, cranberry, any kind!)
1 cup sugar
juice from one lemon
2 tbs light corn syrup

Pour all ingredients into a saucepan.
Gently heat until all the sugar is dissolved.
Chill the syrup in the fridge until it's very cold.
Pour the syrup into a pre-chilled electric ice-cream maker and churn for 30 minutes.
Scoop into a freezer-proof container and freeze for at least 2 hours until it's firm.

 Use any favorite juice you like! Do a blend of juices! Blueberry mango would be SO refreshing! Or how about cherry with lime, or cranberry with peach? Yum! But whatever combination you try, be sure to include the lemon juice. It wakes up the flavor of any juice you choose!
 If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the sorbet mixture into a freezer proof container and freeze for an hour. Whisk with a fork. Return to the freezer, stirring the mixture with a fork every hour or so to break up any large ice crystals. You won't get the same product, but it'll still be delicious and refreshing.
