Ice cream maker happiness!

Hooray! My Krups La Glaciere ice cream maker isn't busted after all! An impatient cook has learned that patience pays, as far as ice cream makers are concerned.

I followed the advice of several helpful chowhounds: freeze the container in the BACK of the freezer (in my case, for 48 hours), make a mixture without honey or booze, and thoroughly chill the mixture (I fridged it overnight).

The result: My blood-orange sorbet froze in 8 minutes. And it was delicious! It was just juice and a hint of sugar; hard to believe that it could be better than the juice alone, but it was.

Thanks to everyone for their advice. I'm confident that adding a hint of alcohol or honey to the next mixture will be a success. (I've got a recipe for ricotta-honey-Grand Marnier ice cream that sounds quite promising.)

Thanks,
Anne
