Pomegranate Cava Sorbet, The Revenge of Ruby Heart-Stealer

December  4, 2012
Author Notes

Ruby Heart-Stealer is back. You may remember her as the Lady in Red to the now disgraced Silvio Berlusconi. We crafted a tribute to her for Valentine's Day in the form of a different sorbet. This time we are using pomegranates (as well as rasberries). Berlusconi always needs a razberry. Again, you will need an ice cream maker.This recipe works well with the Cuisinart 1 1/2 quart model. It can be either a dessert or a palate cleanser between courses, perhaps prior to a holiday roast goose. So then, "Good night you ladies of Spain". —pierino

  • Serves 6
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice*
  • 1 pint fresh rasberries
  • Seeds of one pomegranate, roughly 4 ounces
In This Recipe
  1. Prepare a simple syrup mixture with water and sugar. Combine water and sugar in a sauce pan and heat until just before it boils. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Into a sturdy blender place the rasberries along with 1 tablespoon of your pomegranate seeds (remaining seeds will be served to garnish). Liquefy this mix. Push through a fines strainer to separate any residual pulp or seeds.
