Loads of Grapefruit

Make grapefruit sorbet!

* Update since posting: we tried this last night and it was AMAZING!!

Gingered Grapefruit Sorbet
(From Gourmet)

3 c. strained fresh grapefruit juice (8 grapefruit squeezed out a little over 3 c. juice)
3/4 c. sugar (I only used 1/2 c.)
1 tbs. grated fresh ginger
2 or 3 drops Angostura bitters, or to taste

In a small saucepan combine 1 c. of the grapefruit juice, the sugar, and the ginger and boil the mixture, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool completely.  Pour the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl or large glass measure, stir in the remaining 2 c. grapefruit juice and the bitters, and chill the mixture, covered, until it is cold.  Freeze the mixture in an ice-cream freezer according to the manufacturer's instructions.  (User reviews noted that if you don't have an ice-cream freezer, which we don't, you can freeze the sorbet as-is after mixing all ingredients.  Then, when ready to serve, run through a food processor.)
