Raspberry Sorbet

Last weekend, even though strawberry season was over, I visited Andrew's Scenic Acres hoping there would be some left. I was really disappointed to see that there were barely any strawberries left, until I saw a girl leaving with a big basket of RASPBERRIES. I could get some berries after all!. It was the perfect day for raspberry picking, cloudy but nicely warm and humid, just the perfect day of summer!...

Raspberry Sorbet came to mind as I kept picking all the fresh berries! 

Raspberry Sorbet
200 g of sugar
180 ml water
750 ml red wine
400 g raspberries
Bring to a boil the sugar, water and wine in order to burn the alcohol from the wine. Let boil for over a min, then remove from the heat, add the raspberries and cover. Let it sit for 1 hour, strain the mixture to get rid of all the little seeds and refrigerate until completely chilled.

Freeze in an ice cream maker as instructed by the manufacturer and ENJOY!
