The ingredient list;

  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Fresh Blueberries
  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Fresh Lemon Juice

It seems I always have berries in my fridge when they’re in season. My favorites are strawberries and blueberries, but lately, raspberries have been giving my old favorites a run for their money, so I decided to use all three of them all in this Mixed Berry Sorbet because, well, why not?

I can’t take credit for this sorbet recipe, or the fun technique used for achieving the perfect sorbet texture. I found this recipe on The Kitchn when I Googled “sorbet recipes,” and after looking at several, settled on this one to try.

Mixed Berry Sorbet Recipe

What is simple syrup?

  • Simple syrup is simply an equal parts mixture of water and a sweetening agent (in this case, granulated sugar) which has been heated together to form a syrup.

Other ingredient variations for making simple syrup;

  • Equal parts water and maple syrup
  • Equal parts water and honey
  • Equal parts water and brown sugar
  • Equal parts water and agave syrup
  • Equal parts water and coconut sugar

You get the idea….

How to tell if your blended sorbet mixture is the right consistency, and ready to freeze;

  1. If you’ve ever made your own homemade sorbet, your recipe most likely didn’t call for an egg, and I think you’ll be surprised when you find out this one does. However, it’s not used as an ingredient.
  2. The egg is used as a way to determine the perfect texture and consistency of the sorbet once frozen. It’s pretty ingenious actually, and wish I would have thought of it! 
  3. It’s called the “Egg-Float” test, and the egg is used to measure the amount of simple syrup needed to thin the berries and float the egg within the mixture to where only a nickel size portion of the egg is visible.

The easy instructions for making mixed berry sorbet;

  • Make a simple syrup by bringing sugar and water to a simmer over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Allow the simple syrup to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, wash the berries and assemble the other ingredients.

Simple Syrup for Mixed Berry Sorbet

  • Hull and slice the strawberries.
  • Place them into a blender along with the blueberries, raspberries and ½ cup of the simple syrup.
  • Blend until well pureed.

Blending berries for Mixed Berry Sorbet

  • Place an egg (in the shell) gently into the pureed mixture. 
  • If you see more than a nickel size portion of the egg, remove the egg, and add a touch more simple syrup.
  • Blend.

Egg float test for making Mixed Berry Sorbet

  • Try the egg-float test again until only a nickel portion of the egg shows.
  • Taste.
  • If needed squeeze fresh lemon juice into the puree until you’re happy with the taste.
  • Stir.

Adding simple syrup to Mixed Berry Sorbet

  • Pour the pureed mixture into a prepared ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufactures instructions.
  • Once frozen, serve immediately, or spoon the sorbet into a container and freeze until ready to serve.
