I really hope all the snow is gone for now, until next winter. The only frost I want to see these days is what´s keeping my sorbet frozen.
We have fresh berries in the supermarket. A little box of berries is very expensive. I never buy them, but I always have few bags of frozen berries in my freezer. They are perfect for making a sorbet. Every fall I go out and pick lots and lots of Blueberries and Crowberries to freeze and use it mostly for my smoothie all winter. I find them to precious to drown them with sugar for jams.
- 3 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen ( I only had frozen)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
Put everything in a put and bring to boil. I used strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
Take pot off the heat and cool down.
Puree in a food prosessor ( or a blender) and strain.
Put the sorbet in a box and into the freezer for few hours at least.
If you have an Ice cream machine you can use that.
This recipe can also be used as a berry “kind of a ” jam. Same thing, just don´t freeze it.
I did that the other day and used it with waffles and whipped cream, so very good.
