From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

If you don't have an ice cream freezer, pour mixture into a 2-quart square baking dish. Cover; freeze for 5 to 6 hours or until almost firm. Break frozen mixture into chunks. Transfer to a chilled bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy but not melted. Return to baking dish. Cover and freeze for at least 1 hour.

Test Kitchen Tip:

For a less tart sorbet, decrease peel to 1 teaspoon.
