Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet

by Sala @ Veggie Belly on July 19, 2010

 

I’m in possession of a brand new Cuisinart ice cream maker. And this fruity, tart, not too heavy and gorgeous pink sherbet is exactly the sort of frozen treat I wanted to make to  inaugurate my ice cream maker. This food network recipe is super simple and easy – only 5 ingredients!

The original sherbet recipe uses some cracked black pepperon top of the sherbet. I left this out.

This is the ice cream maker I bought:

For the price, its fantastic

Difference between sherbet and sorbet

- Sorbets never have dairy. They only contain fruit puree, sugar, water and flavorings.

- Sherbets always contain some dairy. Besides the fruit puree and sugar, sherbets will have cream, milk or buttermilk in this case.

In the UK however, a sherbet is a fizzy drink! Its the same in India where I come from; some cold drinks are called ‘sarbath’.

There is always a pile of dishes to do in my kitchen, thanks to my food blogging tendencies. But my trusty human dish washer always helps…and then he is rewarded with sherbet ;)

Notes

- Pretty much any fruit will work in this recipe – peaches, mangoes, all berries

- Make sure the sugar is superfine. If not, it will not dissolved in the liquids properly. You could put granulated sugar in a food processor to make it finer

To make frozen treats like ice cream, sorbet and sherbet without an ice cream maker:

Place the ice cream mixture in an airtight container. Freeze till it has become solid. Then remove from freezer, break it up, and put the icecream in a blender. Blend till smooth. Return ice cream to the freezer. Once it has frozen again, repeat this process once more (blend again and freeze again).

Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet Recipe

Adapted from this Food network recipe
serves 4-6

6 cups raspberries
1/4 cup 100% grape or apple juice
1 cup superfine sugar
1 1/2 cups whole buttermilk
1/4 cup heavy cream
pinch of salt

In a blender, puree the raspberries, fruit juice and sugar. Pass through a strainer (with a bowl below), reserving the liquid and discarding the solids that remain in the strainer.  Stir in buttermilk, cream and salt.  Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.

Then process the mixture in an ice cream maker according manufacturers instructions. Then scoop the churned sherbet into an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. Thaw the sherbet for about 5 minutes before serving.

See notes above on how to make this recipe without an ice cream maker.

I don’t visit your blog for two days and you run through with a post? (This one “Vegan Eggplant Rollatini Stuffed with Couscous and Pine Nuts”) not fair. Next time go slow :)

Love the polka dot mug! Mouth watering icecream

I have a much under-used ice cream maker, so thanks for inspiring me to dust it off and bring it out of retirement!

Trusty dishwasher….. LOL.
I have this tendency of transferring the food from the pan to a serving dish and then the left overs again to a small storage dish. And now with the food blog, a couple more add on….my dish washer is already tired of my blog :D
I should probably show him this and tell him that he is not the only one! :)

oh my god, my grandmother does the exact same thing. Food goes from pan to dish and left overs subsequently go into smaller and smaller dishes!

I do the same too, hence sooo many dishes to wash. Sigh, I don’t have a very enthusiastic human dish water at home. He would do anything except cleaning dishes! :)

:) Mine is the other way round. He can do any amount of cleaning but hates cooking. Which works out well anyways:)

I have that same ice cream maker and I absolutely LOVE it! This looks and sounds delicious – summer is such a wonderful time for fresh fruits, isn’t it?

Your photo of the “trusty washer” made me LOL, because my husband recently told me he was going to start a blog called, “Cleaning Up after KitchenTravels.” ;)

Sala @ Veggie Belly Reply:

LOL!! I have to tell my husband this. I bet there are a lot of spouses whod want to start a blog called “cleaning up after – insert-food-blog-name”!

This looks so delicious. I can’t wait until the weather is a bit warmer here to make ice cream.

By the way, I’ve been tossing up between a Cuisinart ice cream maker and a KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment. What did you think of the Cuisinart?

Sala @ Veggie Belly Reply:

I really like my cuisinart ice cream maker. Like I said, for the price its fantastic. Its very easy to use. Doesnt have too many parts and pieces. Its easy to clean. A full batch of ice cream churns in 30 minutes. Only drawback – its a bit noisy.

I wish I could have an Ice cream maker but I really have no space to accommodate it in my kitchen! Your Sherbet looks very inviting and I like the canvas of raspberries and strawberries:).

i love the pic of the mixture. i wonder why they included the juice–maybe to cut the tartness of the raspberries and buttermilk. i like things tart so i’d like to try it without the juice. looks great!
