Berry Sorbet - Paleo Friendly
- 1 1/2 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup
- 3 cups of fresh berries - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or blackberries
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Cooking time 240mins
In a heavy saucepan, combine the water and sweetener and bring to a boil. Cook stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the syrup is clear.
Add the berries and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat slightly and simmer, stirring constantly, until the berries are soft and beginning to dissolve.
Strain the berries through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing on the berries with the back of a large spoon. Discard the pulp and seeds.
Add the lemon juice to the syrup and stir to combine. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of liquid.
Cover and refrigerate until chilled - at least 3 hours.
Pour the syrup into an ice cream maker and freeze according to directions.
Transfer the sorbet to a container and freeze until firm - at least a couple of hours. This sorbet will always be soft so don't expect it to harden like regular ice cream.
