Posting this for ZWT II 2006 Asia, as taken from "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book". Canned Lychees are available in many supermarkets or almost any Asian Grocery. If you can't find them, stop by you rlocal Chinese restaurant and ask them to sell you a quart or two to go. Sometimes instead of using the ice cream machine, I will put the sorbet mixture into a freezer safe container, put it in the freezer overnight and serve the next day after taking it out 15 minutes ahead of time. It scoops out nicely at that time.
