Its just a puree of strawberries with sugar and a touch of lemon. Freeze it and you have sherbet.
The Sherbet mixture. For 1 quart serving 6 to 8 people, puree 1-½ quarts of fresh strawberries (stemmed and washed) in a food processor or through the finest blade of a vegetable mill Q you should have 3 cups. Pour the puree into a metal bowl and add 2 cups of sugar and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Set mixture over a larger bowl containing: (ice cubes with water to cover them and 1 Tablespoon of salt.) Beat the strawberry mixture with a wire whip or portable mixer for several minutes while the puree chills and the sugar dissolves completely. Freezing. Either freeze the usual way in a machine or set in the freezing compartment of your refrigerator. In the latter case, beat the puree vigorously when it has started to freeze, in order to break up ice crystals, and beat it once again before it has set . It is ready to serve as soon as it has set.
