    I did not include the egg whites, used black pepper and a glug of cassis to the mix and churned mixture in an ice cream maker pouring the mix into individual moulds as part of a trio of desserts, the others made of chocolate. As I used a mix of red berries some of which had pips (raspberries) I passed the mix through a sieve. The sorbet was smooth, juicy and refreshing with a hint of booze and heat from the pepper. - 27 Dec 2013
