Raspberry Lime Riesling Sorbet

Raspberry Lime Riesling Sorbet

Its a lovely feeling to go to your garden, pick your own berries and then make them into something you're incredibly proud of. Whether or not you've got berries in your garden or you find them at the farmers market you'll enjoy making this dessert. Plus, it's always good to have an excuse to pull that ice cream maker you barely use out of its hiding place.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 cups of fresh raspberries (or any kind of berries)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Riesling

DIRECTIONS

Add water and raspberries to a food processor. Pulse until mixture has a smooth consistency.

Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Add pureed raspberries to the strainer (1/4 at a time) and press with the back of a large spoon or a rubber spatula through the strainer to remove the seeds. Repeat with remaining raspberry puree. Discard anything left in the strainer.

Add sugar, riesling and lime juice to the raspberry juice in the bowl. Whisk until sugar is dissolved.

Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions. Serve immediately for a soft-serve dessert OR transfer to a shallow container and freeze an additional 1-2 hours for a more firm sorbet.

I served with some blue berries and a little whipped cream.

Happy New Year! CLE Foodies Look Back at 2013

Overall it was a pretty great year for us! We met lots of amazing people and had tons of adventures. We couldn't be happier with how the blog has progressed and we're excited to be inching ever so closer to making our Wok n Roll Food Truck dreams come true. 2014 is going to be a great year! If all goes well, our food truck will be hitting the road this Spring. It's not worth our time trying imagine all the curveballs ahead, but we learned how good we are at rolling with the punches in 2013.

When I was growing up I loved looking through the family photo albums. My grandfather took photos constantly. When I was born they had to move me to my own area of the nursery so the other babies could avoid my Pop's Polaroid flash. His photos were how I relived my childhood every year. It's no wonder that I grew up photographing everything. Bringing my Pop's traditions and my many photos together I created a slideshow of our 2013.
