Directions

  1. Place raspberries in work bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. If an extra smooth sorbet is desired, press pureed raspberries through a fine sieve to remove seeds. Whisk together pureed raspberries and honey in a large bowl.
  2. Combine 3 cups of water, sugar, and corn syrup in a large saucepan; stir to combine. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes; do not stir. Stir the sugar water and the remaining 1 cup of water into the raspberry puree.
  3. Make an ice bath by filling a very large bowl with water and ice. Set the bowl of raspberry puree in the ice bath, and whisk until cool. Pour cooled puree into a 9x13 baking dish, and cover; freeze until solid, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. To make a coarsely textured granita, use a fork to scrape frozen puree into small crumbs. For a deliciously silky sorbet, transfer frozen puree to a food processor and process until smooth.

You can substitute strawberries, but I found that it needed a cup less water, which made it sweeter. Use your discretion. But works just fine as the recipe states.. just makes more sorbet!

YUMMY! I made this recipe for tonight's dessert. I followed the recipe except for the freezing. Since I didn't have 6 hours for it to freeze, I froze it for an hour to get it cold, then put it into my ice cream machine. The end result was a yummy raspberry sorbet. Thank you Toasted Garlic for sharing your recipe.

Question: Where does the honey come into the preperation? I have a batch of strawberry cooling, having missed the honey. Fingers crossed!

So delicious, but added lime juice after I froze and scooped it. Its the perfect summer recipe especially if you don't have an ice cream machine!

This recipe is very refreshing! I only made a few changes. I used frozen raspberries, the juice of 1 lime, used less honey and increased the sugar to 1 cup. I did use my ice cream maker - 45 minutes and it was perfect. My 6 year old did not like the seeds so I strained a batch for her and she was happy.
