Raspberry sorbet

Raspberry sorbet
To make a seriously good raspberry sorbet, the fruit must be of the best quality, of course, but there is another little secret: you need to remove all the seeds to make a really smooth coulis.

It is this smooth coulis that makes the sorbet so deliciously velvety.
