black and red (raspberry) sorbet

  • 1 cup black raspberries
  • 1 cup red raspberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • lemon juice
  • tiny bit of salt
put everything in a pot,
heat,
mix, 
smash, 
puree.

strain out the seeds.

chill.


put into ice cream maker.

freeze.




so it is finally berry season. 

(thank god)

so it is finally time for berry ice creams and sorbets.

(thank god)

i made blueberry ice cream on sunday
(i had to make something for jb as a "i'm sorry i'll be gone for 6.5 weeks" present)

and now it is time for the raspberries.



there was a lot of discussion about whether i 
should be making sorbet, ice cream, or sherbet.

i was told to make ice cream.
but it's so much harder.
heating eggs without scrambling them. 
ugh. 
but then i tasted the berries. 


it's still pretty early in the season
so they aren't quite popping yet. 


i decided to make sorbet instead,
(i was afraid the milk in the ice cream would kill all of the pop)
but eh. 


it's ok. 
kind of. 


bummer.
but oh well. 


there will be time later in the season to make more. 




oh wait. 
i'll be in mexico.
and DR.

um,
fabulous.





ps. today was the last day of school!!!!!! 
thank you summertime.
