Cooling raspberry sorbet

As the weather has been so nice of late, now I've said that it will go back to normal no doubt, I decided to make something cool for dessert. Raspberries are great this time of year so you should be able to find them at the supermarkets, I was lucky enough to get them for free from my mums allotment. There isn't alot of work in this dessert and the flavour is delicious, so get making!

Serves 6-8
170g/6oz granulated sugar
Juice of half a lemon
470g/17oz raspberries
250ml water

1. Put the lemon juice, water and sugar into a saucepan and heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thicker, or syrupy, leave to cool.
2. Whizz up the raspberries in a blender then strain the juice out through a sieve, alternatively just push the raspberries through a sieve, and add to the sugar mixture.
3. Pour the combined mixture into a freezeable tub and put in the freezer for a few hours, take out and break up the ice crystals with a fork and return to the freezer.
4. Take out of freezer 20mins before eating, serve with fruit or meringue, enjoy.
