3 cups mixed berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries), fresh or frozen
1/2 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional, for added brightness)
A pinch of salt
1. Prepare the Berries:
If you're using fresh berries, wash and hull them. If using frozen berries, allow them to thaw slightly.
2. Blend the Berries:
Place the mixed berries in a blender or food processor. Add the granulated sugar, water, lemon juice (if using), and a pinch of salt.
3. Blend Until Smooth:
Blend the mixture until it becomes smooth and all the ingredients are well combined.
4. Taste and Adjust:
Taste the sorbet mixture and adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar if needed, blending again to combine.
5. Strain (Optional):
If you prefer a smoother sorbet, you can strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any seeds. This step is optional.
Pour the sorbet mixture into a container with a lid and refrigerate it for about 2-3 hours, or until it's thoroughly chilled.
Transfer the chilled sorbet mixture to an ice cream maker and churn it according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually takes about 20-30 minutes.
8. Serve or Store:
You can serve the sorbet immediately for a soft-serve consistency, or transfer it to an airtight container and freeze for an additional 2-3 hours for a firmer texture.
