Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (1 beneficials)

  • Type B (0 beneficials)
  • Type O (0 beneficials)
  • Dessert
  • 12 ounces raspberries, washed, drained and pureed (I'm guessing about 3-4 cups).
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
How to make it:
  1. You can press the berries through a strainer. I didn't because I didn't mind the seeds.
  2. Make ahead of time a simple syrup.
  3. Add the water to the pan - then the sugar. Stir over medium heat just until sugar dissolves. Cover pan with a lid and boil gently for 5 minutes. Do not stir to avoid crystals. Set the pan of syrup aside until it cools.
  4. Add enough of the syrup to the berry puree to satisfy your taste.
  5. I did not use all of my syrup.
  6. The remainder can be used for lemonade or another use. You can also make a more dilute solution of syrup if you like.
  7. Add juice of 1/2 lemon.
  8. Freeze mixture.
  9. If you like, you can process in an ice cream freezer.
  10. My sorbet was delicious!
