Help with Homemade Pomegranate Sorbet

mdzehnder | Nov 20, 2009 10:20 AM

I would like to make a pomegranate sorbet for an upcoming dinner I'm hosting (it's both light and seasonal, and doesn't require an ice cream maker).

Anyone have suggestions? I'm planning on following this basic recipe

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Lemon-So...

but what worries me is that I think pomegranate juice is a good bit sweeter than lemon--does the quantity of sugar need to be reduced?

Also, I've heard that cardamom is a good complimentary flavor to pomegranate and I'd like to incorporate it in some fashion--any suggestions?

Finally, if anyone has simply a straight recipe for what I'm looking for (rather than suggestions for modifying the above) I'd take that as well.

I need to make this tomorrow so anything you can tell me would be helpful.

Thanks.
