3 cups


  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 3 cup fresh raspberries

  • 2 tablespoon orange juice


  1. For syrup, in a medium saucepan heat and stir sugar and the water over medium heat just until simmering, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice. Transfer to a medium bowl; cover and chill completely.

  2. Place raspberries and orange juice in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Press puree through a fine-mesh sieve; discard seeds. Stir puree into chilled syrup.

  3. Spread raspberry mixture in a 2-quart square baking dish. Cover and freeze about 4 hours or until firm. Break up mixture with a fork; place in food processor or blender, half at a time if necessary. Cover and process or blend for 30 to 60 seconds or until smooth and lightened in color. Spoon sorbet back into the dish; cover and freeze for 6 to 8 hours more or until firm. To serve, let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before scooping.
