No ice cream machine required! Partially sweetened with honey to give it a delicious sun-ripened quality. Very tart and very flavorful. This recipe is versatile, as the finished product can be an icy granita or smooth sorbet.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 (6 ounce) containers fresh red raspberries
  • ½ cup honey
  • 4 cups water, divided
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup

Cooking Directions

  1. 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. 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. 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. 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.

  4. 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!
  5. really really tasty:) x only thing i would say is if u do not own a food processor thn blend the rasberries with a drip of milk so it blends betterand is a smoother mixture:) x
  6. Question: Where does the honey come into the preperation? I have a batch of strawberry cooling having missed the honey. Fingers crossed!
  7. 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 - Read more ...
  8. Soooooo good. Great served after seafood.
  9. 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!
