I love Sherbet, its even easier to make than ice cream. Why? None of that custard making and worrying about scrambling the egg because your mixture is to hot,
This Sherbet is quite the taste treat. One can use fresh peaches but we are really a few weeks short of them here so I opted for frozen peaches. If using fresh you can cut your roasting time by 10-15 minutes.
Using buttermilk and sour cream instead of half and half really works magic in the sherbet. I adds just the right tang to offset the super sweetness of the roasted peaches. Yummo.
