RECIPE: orange sherbet from norge fridge cookbook

Whew! After a morning of formatting and re-formatting the layout of the NORGE COLD COOKERY and RECIPE DIGEST [No year given, but pictures of ringer washers and boasts of the Norge "Rollator," which consists of "three simple moving parts -- a roller, shaft and blade, which are sealed in a bath of oil" promise to "make you healthier, wealthier, and happier" would date it back to at least the '50s, wouldn't you say?]
I get impatient with recipies for ice cream that end with something like, "Follow ice-cream maker manufacturer's instructions" for time and consistency, when I don't HAVE an ice-cream maker. (Same is true w/ a recipe called "Dill Biscuits" whose first ingredient is a roll of 10 refrigerator biscuits!)

The following sherbet requires one or two stirrings
to give it a fine, even texture. However, the home manager
may prefer the extra work rather than pay the price
of whipping cream. (Don't you love it?!)
Combine pineapple (juice and pulp), orange juice, rind, and sugar.
Stir until the sugar is entirely dissolved.
Add the evaporated milk and salt.
Pour into a tray and freeze in the Norge Refrigerator.
When partially frozen, remove from the tray and stir thoroughly.
(Serves 6.)




1 TALL CAN EVAPORATED MILK (What's a "tall can" of EM?)


The little book also offers recipes for Sandwiches and Spreads, Tasty Meat Dishes, Sunday Night Suppers, Salads, Salad Dressings, Desserts, Ice Cream and Ices, Cookies, Cakes, and Refrigerator Rolls.

If anyone's craving an old recipe from one of those categories, let me know, and I'll try to format it for you.

Norge...likely from the 60's...early 60's..
And I will tell you that if you make icecream with what my mother used to call "vappy" it will taste like "vappy"...EWWW...Pop for the cream!!
Evaporated milk comes in 2 sizes...a tall can...think it holds about 12 oz, and a short can which holds 1/2 that.
Way back when, lots of people used "vappy" in their coffee and tea....even restraunts ( at least on the east coast) even offered a choice of evaporated milk or cream with your coffee. Growing up there was always a short can of "vappy" with 2 holes punched into the top, sitting in the refrigerator, because one of my grand mothers who lived with us preferred it....EWWW!!

My aunt used to make orange sherbert in the ice cube trays from the little, bitty freezer in the refrigerator. I used to love the stuff. And Norge refrigerators went back at least to the early 50's. Don't know about earlier than that.
