I love the fresh taste of this recipe. It seems more like a granita than a sorbet to me but it may just be that I have my freezer set too high, LOL!. Either way, it’s yummy and makes a great dessert after a heavy meal.
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup orange juice
2 cups fresh blackberries
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
Bring the water to a boil, stir in sugar, add orange juice and simmer for 5 minutes. Cool syrup and chill in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, combine the berries and lime juice in a food processor and puree. Do not overprocess. Put the puree through a sieve to remove seeds, if desired.
Mix the chilled syrup and puree together and freeze in an ice cream maker (at least 2 quart size) according to the manufacturer’s directions.
I always put the finished sorbet in the freezer for a bit before dishing it up.
