Enjoy a bit of Summer with Raspberry Sorbet

Raspberries are in full bloom here in Southern Maine so I thought I would post a quick refreshing summer recipe! Bon Appetit!

Raspberry Sorbet

1 cup of water
1/2 cup sugar
2 c. fresh raspberries, washed and picked over
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

1. Combine water with the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until the sugar is fully dissolved. Set aside to cool.
2. Combine the raspberries with the remaining water in a blender. Purée thoroughly. Strain through a chinois.
3. Combine the raspberry purée with the other ingredients and chill.
4. Freeze mixture in an ice cream machine. Harden in a freezer.
5. Move the sorbet to a refrigerator for a half hour before serving.

Yield: about 4 servings
