raspberry lemon sorbet

During our traveling, I keep seeing McDonald's advertising frozen strawberry lemonade.  I am not a lemonade person but it really sounded good to me.  I am NOT a McDonald's person so there was really only one answer.  Make my own.  I did pick up the wrong fruit at the grocery which is why this is raspberry.  I will have to try it with strawberry sometime soon.

Raspberry Lemon Sorbet

1 1/2 pounds lemons

1 cup sugar

10 ounces frozen raspberries

Juice the lemons to make 1 cup juice.  Put the juice and one cup sugar in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and let boil one minute.  Put the raspberries in a blender container.  Pour the syrup over them and blend very well.  Freeze in an ice cream freezer per its instructions or put in a freezer proof container.  Stir every couple hours until solid.

This was a VERY rich, VERY tart sorbet.  I may try 1/2 cup lemon juice and a 1/2 cup water next time.  I also wish to try it with a shot of vodka or Cointreau.  I will make this as this is again though.
