A couple months ago I harvested our bluebell grapes and made grape juice.  Too busy to do anything with the juice at the time, I froze it - until now.  Time to make grape sorbet!   Begin by thawing the grape juice.

*  3 cups homemade grape juice
*  1/4 cup superfine sugar
*  2 tablespoons lemon juice
*  2 tablespoons orange cointreau or other orange liquor
Add grape juice, sugar and lemon juice to a bowl and mix well to incorporate the sugar.  Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and run for about 1/2 hour or until mixture thickens.  Add cointreau* and continue to mix until the cointreau is well incorporated into the sorbet.  Put all into a storage container and place in your freezer.

Next time you're over, ask me for a taste!

*    Alcohol inhibits the freezing process.  To add alcohol to a recipe, do so in the last minutes of freezing.
