How did Wolfgang make five-minute sorbet?

Wolfgang made this shortcut sorbet using the science behind any complex ice cream maker. When salt is added to ice water, it lowers its “freezing point depression.” This causes the water to continue to draw heat from the surrounding environment – in this case, the fruit juice. As the fruit juice loses more and more of its heat to the water, it freezes, transforming into sorbet in just minutes.
