Creamy Citrus Sherbet

This recipe was handwritten in a booklet that came with my family's first refrigerator in the early 1940s. I was very young at the time, but I can still remember the iceman delivering huge blocks of ice. Since finding the booklet among my mother's things, I make this refreshing dessert often. -Maribelle Culver, Grand Rapids, Michigan
