Refreshing Blackberry Sorbet

Refreshing Blackberry Sorbet

If you want an alternative to the classic lemon sorbet, the blackberry sorbet recipe is for you. Summer is coming, and refreshing yourself after a meal with a tasty sorbet made with organic fruit is pleasant.

This dessert reminds me of the breakfasts my dad and I would have every Sunday at the Bar del Corso.

Refreshing Blackberry Sorbet

Sicily can get hot in the summer, and the best time to eat is early morning or after sunset. Sundays were notable because he was not working, and I could spend some time with him. We walked a short distance to reach the part of the old town where the best Bar was, in front of the Cathedral in the main “piazza” of our town. It was a delicious “granita” or a sorbet made of some berry, all accompanied by a warm brioche.

So, yesterday, when I saw beautiful blackberries at the store, I could not resist and bought them. I then made a blackberry sorbet in my kitchen to celebrate that time and to show my kids what that was for me.
