I’m a real berry-lover. I like them almost as much as chocolate (that is saying A LOT!) – and in summer even more! 😉 Therefore, this wonderfully light dessert is all berries: Wild strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, … Each already fabulous on its own and when combined, simply amazing!I do not yet have enough berries in my garden to make this sorbet not only homemade, but also “homegrown”, but all the berries used for the decoration are out of my own garden. ❤
For the sorbet I used frozen berries, which were also really tasty. To add an extra touch I put some lime juice into the sorbet as well – it makes it even more refreshing! What are your favourite berry recipes? Feel free to comment below and share your ideas – I am looking forward to it.Berry much love,
Forest Berry Sorbet
Preparation time: 10 min
Total time: 30-40 min (with an ice cream-machine)
- 600g forest berries (wild strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, …)
- 1-2 tbsp. water
- juice of 1 lime
- 180-220g sugar (depending on the sweetness of the berries and your taste)
- Put the berries, water and lime juice into a pot.
- Bring to the boil, then, let the mixture simmer for about 15 minutes.
- Add sugar and let it simmer for another few minutes (the sugar has to dissolve completely). Taste the mixture to decide on the right amount of sugar, but be careful: the sorbet will lose sweetness when frozen!
- Blend or pound the berries and to press through a sieve. Put in the fridge to cool down.
- Put the cooled sorbet mixture into the ice cream maker and freeze it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For a soft texture consume right now, for a firmer texture place it into a container and put it into the freezer as long as you like.
- Decorate with fresh wild berries and serve!
