The origins of Sorbetto come by Arabians, who invented the sherbet, a drink made of fruit, water and sweetener. Arabians definitely improved their technique during the domination of Sicily. Do you know how? Simply, thanks to a mix of snow from Etna Volcano and marine salt: this allowed keeping low temperatures during the making process.
The most common Sorbetto is the one “al limone”, made with fresh Sicilian lemons!
