Raspberry-Prosecco Sorbet
Sorbets, or Italian ices, are frozen desserts usually made with fresh fruit, water, and just enough sugar to enhance their natural sweetness and keep them smooth once churned in an ice cream maker and frozen.  You will notice that most of the sorbet recipes have just a few ingredients.  Simple syrup, which is water and sugar heated together until the sugar is dissolved, is usually the base to which the fruit is added. A squeeze of lemon juice or other flavorings are sometimes added to further heighten the natural fruit flavors.  You can be creative and combine whatever fruits you like.

I've owned several food mills over the years, and in my opinion, this one is the best.  The advantage of a food mill over a food processor or blender is that it separates the skins and seeds from the fruit or vegetable pulp.  It is the perfect tool for preparing fruit purees, sauces, and soups.  It has a stainless steel inner bowl that is ideal for hot foods and does not stain, and includes 3 stainless steel grinding discs for fine, medium and coarse textures. This food mill has a unique release button that makes it easy to exchange discs and disassemble for storage.

This is the ice cream maker that I have owned for a number of years and am very happy with it.  You can make up to 1-1/2 quarts of ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, sorbet, or frozen drinks in only about 20 minutes.  It's fully automatic; simply place the ingredients into the bowl and turn on the machine.
