Tangy Lemon Raspberry Sorbet


This week’s Sundae Sunday will waken your senses right from your very first bite.  The sweet angelic side of raspberries along with lemon’s devilish sour component, may just make your lips pucker.  The sweet and sour combination in one frozen dessert is the perfect way to cool down this summer’s heat.

The result of this sorbet was an unexpected success being that I’ve never made one in the past.  I was a bit apprehensive in continuing when I opened the fridge the next morning to see the mixture much like liquid Jell-O.  Despite my reluctance, I decided, “What the hell, I’ll just throw it in there and see what happens,” and lo and behold, it worked!

I must say, this has to be the best sorbet I’ve ever tried!  Maybe it’s the best because I made it myself but hey, when you make one too and it’s a success, you’ll understand why.
