Directions

  1. Wash the raspberries well.
  2. Dissolve 1/2 cup of sugar in 1/2 cup of water.
  3. Combine the sugar water mix and the raspberries in a blender.
  4. Optional: Strain out the raspberry seeds.
  5. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker.
  6. Freeze as for ice cream. It takes about 30 minutes in a 1 quart gel canister ice cream maker.
  7. Let the sorbet harden for an additional 30 minutes in the freezer. (Don't leave the sorbet in the freezer too long, or it will be hard to scoop and have the texture of a popsicle.)
  8. Serve immediately with fresh berries or mint sprigs.

I usually make sorbet with frozen berries and juice in my Bullet blender and it is instant sorbet. I like the idea of using water and sugar instead, though, as I do not always have juice on hand.

It must be easy peasy I'm only 11 and I know that I'd love to make it but we don't have an ice cream maker(or space in the frezzer) so I can't.
