2 cups persimmon pulp and juice
1 1/2 cups mango
1/2 cup milk
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon brandy (optional)

Freeze in ice cream makes according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Scrape into freezer safe container and cure in freezer for 2 hours.

The paper bag raises the temperature and will help to keep the sherbet from becoming as hard as a rock.

Place a scoop on top of a bowl of fruit salad.
Use a small scoop of sherbet to make a sherbet sandwich with two sugar cookies.
Top with mango juice and seltzer for a fruity float.

* Sherbet recipes use dairy or non-dairy milk to make a creamy dessert; sorbets do not.
