Cheat’s raspberry sorbet and strawberry salad


  • Serves 4 people

  • 500 gm frozen raspberries
  • To taste: pure icing sugar
  • 250 gm (1 punnet) strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 125 gm (1 punnet) fresh raspberries
  • 1-2 tbsp pomegranate molasses, plus extra (optional) to serve
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
01   Process frozen raspberries in a food processor until crumbly – they will start off looking like crumbled frozen raspberries, but don’t worry. Add 80-125ml hot water or enough to help process and melt the berries a little. Continue processing, scraping down sides occasionally, until you end up with a smooth raspberry ice (3-4 minutes). Add icing sugar to taste, then serve straight away or freeze until required. Makes about 600ml.
02   Meanwhile, toss strawberries in a bowl with fresh raspberries, pomegranate molasses, sugar and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stand to lightly marinate (10-15 minutes), then divide among four chilled serving glasses, scoop sorbet on top and serve immediately drizzled with extra pomegranate molasses, if you like.
