Homemade Black Cherry and Concord Grape Sorbet-Good Source of Antioxidants

My wife recently bought one of those two packs of Welch's Black Cherry Concord Grape Juice.  We have been drinking some of it and it is a fine juice, but I thought with this horrible heat it might make a great sorbet.  My wife's face instantly lit up at the idea so I put the bowl from our ice cream maker in the freezer overnight so we were ready to go the next day.

All we did was put four cups (one quart) of juice straight in and we turned on the ice cream maker. Yes, it was that easy and simple!

About half an our later, we had a fruity, non-fat desert high in antioxidants. (The juice has 250 mg of polyphenol antioxidants per 8/oz serving).  It was refreshing and cooling in this hot weather and with zero guilt.  It is also a very pretty dish.  Finally, it is a very practical desert given the time and money involved. In every way I am pleased with this tasty and healthy desert.
