Raspberry Gelato

(or blackberry, boysenberry, etc.)

Ice cream, sorbet, gelato...what's the difference? Check it out here.

3/4 C sugar
1 C milk
16 oz raspberries
juice of one lemon

Combine the milk, sugar, and berries in a saucepan; heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool to room temperature.

Place all ingredients, including lemon juice, in a blender and process until smooth. If desired, strain to remove any seeds. Place mixture in ice cream maker for 20-25 minutes. If desired, transfer to an air-tight container to freeze for a firmer consistency.

Serve. If desired, garnished with fresh berries, whipped cream, mint leaves, wafer cookies...

It's also delicious with a tablespoon of finely chopped fresh mint leaves (add them when you're heating the first ingredients in the saucepan for the most flavor). Lime can be substituted for the lemon juice for a subtle twist on the flavor.
