Tips on how to make the perfect raspberry sorbet
- Start with fresh or frozen raspberries: for the best flavor, use ripe and juicy raspberries that are in season. If you can’t find fresh raspberries, frozen will work just as well.
- Add sugar to taste: depending on how sweet you like your sorbet, you may want to add more or less sugar.
- Use a high-powered blender or food processor: this will help to create a smooth and creamy sorbet texture. If you don’t have either of these appliances, you can try using a hand blender instead.
