Raspberry Beret

Hmmmmmmmm, hm! Raspberry season, finding lots of things to do with them besides giving them away. Everyones favourite has been Raspberry Sorbet. So easy to make.

2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water
bring to the boil together and let them cool.

Add 2 cups of pureed raspberries, stir well and throw the lot in the freezer, stir two or three times before it freezes to make a really creamy dessert without any cream. Low fat, but high sugar. But then, I'm not afraid of sugar ;-)

We've also made apricot sorbet the same way - I told Caleb you can replace the 2 cups of fruit with anything, including onions, the idea of which did not appeal to him a great deal.

Wow what a lot has happened since I last dropped in.

I was so sorry to hear Trev's father had died. Belated birthdya wishes Trec - hope the backis holding up to.

The raspberries look amazing, as does the honey and bossy SM if I was ten years younger I would follow the link.

All the best for 2008

Hi I loved your book. I enjoy reading your new blog. I am glad you guys are seeming to be settleing into tassie so well. I love across the river over at Wattle Grove beautiful place down here in the Huon.

So sad to hear of Trevs dads passing.

**Wow! I have used the exact same recipe to make Peach Sorbet - truly divine :D I am reading your book again (for the 3rd time!) and I'd just like to say again how inspiring your story is. Thank You for not being perfect - you keep me going :)

Those berries look so delicious. My 3 year old was looking over my shoulder at the laptop, and his pronouncement: "yum!"

It sounds like everything has been a little crazy, so I hope it all settles down with the new year.

I wish you good rainfall and gentle sunshine in exactly the right amounts, and lots more berries and honey!

We love raspberries and I have some frozen in the freezer right now - so we need to try this. Sounds like a simple dessert that would be great in the summer. Thanks.

I just dropped in to say hello and found your new blog. Excellent! Can I swap a tray of mangoes for some raspberries? They look delicious.

It's great to see the progress you're making.

I'll add this blog to my blog roll.
