Strawberry or Raspberry Sorbet

Its interesting that strawberries in late Feb through March are quite delicious if you look around for the right ones. I love sorbet – courtesy of my stay in France. Give me sorbet any day over icecream or gelatti.


500g strawberries or raspberries 285g (10 oz) sugar 120 ml (0.25 pint) water
juice 1 lemon juice 1 orange 4 Tblspn orange liqueur or kirsch

Liquidise the fruit, for example, in a blender. Make a syrup of the sugar and water, or better still, use liquid glucose. When it is cool, add the fruit puree and the orange juice. Strain through a sieve.

Taste, and adjust sweetness with lemon juice or additional sugar syrup. If too thick, dilute with a little extra water.

Place in the icecream maker. About half way through the freezing process, gradually add the liqueur to the icecream maker. Continue freezing until ready to transfer to the freezer.
