Last Taste Of Summer

Raspberry Sorbet, the last taste of summer.
I had the privileged of borrowing a gelato maker, no ice, no salt, no air. Plug it in and go. It was fantastic, Thanks Maryellen!

Raspberry Sorbet

48 oz fresh raspberries, cleaned (I suppose it would work with frozen raspberries too)
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 lemon

Zest and juice the lemon into a sauce pan, add sugar and water mix and bring to a boil stirring occasionally.
Strain and cool until completely chilled.
Puree the raspberries and strain into a container. Cool in the fridge until chilled through.
Mix the chilled raspberry puree and the sugar mix, strain one more time.
From here just add into your ice cream machine and follow the machine instructions.

Yes, it's a lot of straining and arm power but it's so worth it. A nice creamy soft sorbet. You can also use lime instead of lemon, just use two. And if you really want to get fancy add some mini chocolate chips when you remove it from the machine and hard freeze in the freezer.
