Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

About two weeks ago I got put on a new client project at work. My role on this particular project is all about food. I’m responsible for creating content. About food. Ummmm, could this be a more perfect match? I’m thrilled. I was actually on a business trip for a different client when the spot opened up, and I will love my boss FOREVER for suggesting my name. She pretty much made my life.

For the past two weeks, I’ve been researching and writing. Cooking and baking. Snapping pictures and editing. And it has been FUN. I haven’t had this much fun at work in a loooonnngggg time. I feel excited and inspired. It’s refreshing.

You know what else is refreshing? Sherbet. Specifically, this raspberry buttermilk sherbet. It’s icy and creamy. Light and dense with flavor. It’s the best of both worlds: everything there is to love about the fruitiness of a sorbet combined with the flavor and density of an ice cream. It hits the perfect summer note.

Gather Up:
6 cups raspberries (4-5 pints)
1/4 cup 100% grape or apple juice
1 cup superfine sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup heavy cream
Kosher salt

Puree the raspberries, juice and sugar in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the buttermilk, cream and a pinch of salt. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 4 hours.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm.

To serve, allow to thaw on the counter for about 20 minutes before scooping.

Enjoy big spoonfuls, or in ice cream sandwiches, with the cookie of your choice. We used mini gingersnaps – yum!
