Hiking along the Bridger Range one can find pockets of fresh raspberries that have escaped being eaten by wildlife, so that makes them fair game for those of us on two legs. I like them fresh and with a shot of cream over the top of them for a simple bowl of fruit. They are selling fresh on the corner, and they are great on cereals, oatmeal, blended (that sounds so terrible) with other fruit and plucked out of the container by fingers. They are great anyway you serve them.
This year, they seem to be so much sweeter than usual.
We had a little visit with the neighbors, and she served margaritas with raspberries on the side. She had mixed lemon, lime, orange and a touch of pineapple with Gold and served them in a salted glass. She added blended watermelon to the left over mix the next day and enjoyed more margaritas. The fresh raspberries were sweet, and they offset the tart citrus in the drink. It was a refreshing cocktail.
The idea of smashing all those luscious raspberries breaks my heart, but this recipe demands the smashing of the raspberries, and since I know a few of you have sorbet makers and ice cream machines, here is a yummy recipe for raspberry ice cream!
Smooth Raspberry Ice Cream
4 cups fresh raspberries
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1. Puree raspberries in a blender or food processor; pour mixture through a strainer to remove seeds.
2. Beat eggs and sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Stir raspberry puree, half-and-half, cream, corn syrup, and lemon juice into the egg-sugar mixture.
3. Transfer raspberry cream mixture to the ice cream maker. Freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.\
