About this recipe: No ice cream machine required! Partially sweetened with honey to give it a delicious sun-ripened quality. Very tart and very flavourful. This recipe is versatile, as the finished product can be an icy granita or smooth sorbet.

Toasted Garlic

Serves: 10 

  • 675g fresh red raspberries
  • 175g honey
  • 1L water, divided
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 150g golden syrup

  1. Place raspberries in work bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. If an extra smooth sorbet is desired, press pureed raspberries through a fine sieve to remove seeds. Whisk together pureed raspberries and honey in a large bowl.
  2. Combine 750ml of water, sugar and golden syrup in a large saucepan; stir to combine. Bring to the boil over high heat. Boil until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes; do not stir. Stir the sugar water and the remaining 250ml of water into the raspberry puree.
  3. Make an ice bath by filling a very large bowl with water and ice. Set the bowl of raspberry puree in the ice bath, and whisk until cool. Pour cooled puree into a 22x33cm baking dish, and cover; freeze until solid, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. To make a coarsely textured granita, use a fork to scrape frozen puree into small crumbs. For a deliciously silky sorbet, transfer frozen puree to a food processor and process until smooth.
