Day 200 - Raspberry Sorbet
Raspberry Sorbet (p. 485)
I was beginning to think that the only truly great sorbets I'd make would be citrus flavors and pineapple, but this is definitely another winner.
I used four of those shallow 6 ounce containers worth of raspberries, which were supposed to yield two cups of puree total, but somehow I ended up with four cups. (?) I decided to add only the suggested amount of syrup, since the sweetness level seemed balanced. As the puree+syrup mixture was rather thick, I didn't bother applying the egg test. (See Mango Sorbet.)
I just froze it and prayed. And my prayers were answered! This may be my favorite flavor yet, although that grapefruit sorbet is pretty amazing. This has a ton of sharp/sweet flavor AND brilliant color. Great combo.
FYI, I'm now officially a sorbet-lover.
Until we eat again....
