Strawberry Orange Sorbet image

Got this one from "The Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Cookbook" by Mable and Gar Hoffman. This is what happens when you buy strawberries from Costco -- you've got to come up with a LOT of recipes to use 'em up. This was a delightful sorbet, made with fresh Valencia orange juice and extremely ripe strawberries. I varied the original recipe a bit by throwing in a quarter (well, closer to a half) cup of orange-flavored liqueur at the end of the freeze cycle.
