Raspberry Sorbet

I'm loving my new Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and the manual that comes with it has some great recipes.  Today I made the raspberry sorbet ~ it was very easy, few ingredients and refreshing, yummy and healthy!  Look at that vibrant pretty pink color :)
Here's the recipe adapted from the Cuisinart Recipe Booklet: 
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
pinch salt
1 package frozen raspberries = about 3 cups
1 small container fresh raspberries = 1 cup
Puree together both raspberries in a food processor.  In a medium saucepan cook together the water and sugar over med-low heat, cook until the sugar is fully dissolved.  Add the salt and raspberry puree.  Strain half the mixture at a time through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. 
Cover and refrigerate for 2 -3 hours or overnight.  Turn on your ice cream maker and pour in the raspberry mixture.  Mix until thickened about 15-20 minutes.  Pour the sorbet in an air tight container and place in freezer until desired firmness, I left mine in overnight.
The soft, just churned sorbet

After freezing overnight, ready for scooping and serving!

And ready for eating!
