  1. Place raspberries in work bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. If an extra smooth sorbet is desired, press pureed raspberries through a fine sieve to remove seeds. Whisk together pureed raspberries and honey in a large bowl.
  2. Combine 3 cups of water, sugar, and corn syrup in a large saucepan; stir to combine. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes; do not stir. Stir the sugar water and the remaining 1 cup of water into the raspberry puree.
  3. Make an ice bath by filling a very large bowl with water and ice. Set the bowl of raspberry puree in the ice bath, and whisk until cool. Pour cooled puree into a 9x13 baking dish, and cover; freeze until solid, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. To make a coarsely textured granita, use a fork to scrape frozen puree into small crumbs. For a deliciously silky sorbet, transfer frozen puree to a food processor and process until smooth.

Question: Where does the honey come into the preperation? I have a batch of strawberry cooling, having missed the honey. Fingers crossed!

This recipe is very refreshing! I only made a few changes. I used frozen raspberries, the juice of 1 lime, used less honey and increased the sugar to 1 cup. I did use my ice cream maker - 45 min...

So delicious, but added lime juice after I froze and scooped it. Its the perfect summer recipe especially if you don't have an ice cream machine!

Made this twice and love it! Great hit among the family! Used fresh raspberrys from my garden. Delicious!

Excellent. Followed recipe; strained out the seeds. Half the batch was frozen in freezer. This creates more ice crystals although stirring it up brings it back to a slushy consistency. Other hal...
