DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium nonreactive saucepan, cook the fresh raspberries, water, sugar, and salt over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture just begins to simmer, about 7 minutes.
  • Pass the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible.
  • Add the lemon juice and Triple Sec or vodka; cover with plastic wrap and chill in the freezer until very cold, about 40º, about 30-40 minutes. Do not let mixture freeze.
  • When the mixture is cold, using a whisk, whip the cream in a chilled medium bowl until soft peaks form. Whisking constantly, add the chilled juice mixture in a steady stream pouring against the edge of the bowl.
  • Immediately start the ice cream machine and add the juice/cream mixture to the frozen canister; churn until the sherbet has the texture of soft-serve ice cream, 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove the canister from the machine and transfer the sherbet to a storage container; press plastic wrap directly against the surface of the sherbet (to prevent ice crystals from forming) and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours. The sherbet can be wrapped well in plastic wrap and frozen for up to one week.
  • To serve, let the sherbet stand at room temperature until slightly softened and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the sherbet registers 12º to 15º.

“Unlike ice cream, store-bought sherbet is usually third-rate. If you want a really good fruit sherbet, do you have to make it yourself? YES! If using a canister-style ice cream machine, freeze the canister for at least 12 hours, or preferably, overnight. If the canister is not thoroughly frozen, the sherbet will not freeze beyond a slushy consistency. In-season fresh raspberries have the best flavor, but when they are not in season, frozen raspberries are a better option. Substitute a 12-ounce bag of frozen raspberries for fresh. Vodka can be substituted for the Triple Sec, but I prefer the citrus flavor of the Triple Sec. Prep time includes juice chilling time. Adapted from Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen)”
