mixed berries with lemon honey sorbet
The weather seems to be getting hotter. In the heat, it is hard to concentrate and get things done at times. Here is a fresh and simple summer dessert: mixed berries with sorbet. I made a quick lemon honey sorbet for my berry salad. If its too hot or inconvenient, I suggest buying some lemon or raspberry sorbet to spoon on top.
Lemon honey sorbet
100 g. sugar
100 g. honey
275 ml water
juice of 7 lemons
Place the sugar, honey and water in a pan, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a while. Juice your lemons. Mix the lemon juice and the sugar syrup together, cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight. Stir sorbet mixture and freeze in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
