A Change of Taste

Can you imagine just a few short years ago, I didn't eat raspberries? Not because I didn't like the taste but because of the seeds. Then one day we had some friends over for lunch and they brought the dessert. A cream pie with fresh raspberries from the farmer's market to serve alongside. Not wanting to be rude, I had a few raspberries with my pie, and I couldn't believe I had been missing out for so long. The seeds didn't even bother me!
From that moment, I promised myself I would always taste something I thought I didn't like, just in case. Even olives. And someday I promise to give you the recipe a friend of mine uses for marinating olives, the only olives I've ever actually liked! But this is not a post about olives, it's about a fabulous raspberry sherbet that Cookie Baker Lynn posted very recently. The color and the simplicity of the dessert was just so tempting, I couldn't help but make it that very same day! It is so refreshing and you know what? No seeds, just that beautiful raspberry flavor. So if raspberry seeds bother you, this is the dessert to try! I was going to enter this in Grace's Beat The Heat event, but I have something else up my sleeve! Just wish me a few good picture taking hours and I'll be good to go. Heck, even just a few minutes would make me happy these days!
Give Cookie Baker Lynn a visit for the sherbet recipe, and while you're at it take a peek through her archives, you're bound to find one or a dozen recipes that make you go: "Oooh, I HAVE to try this!".
Pin It!

Wow, that is one gorgeously pink sherbet! Beautiful!

I have that rule too, but I won't try it if the smell is too offensive, though-- my nose is really sensitive!

Raspberries are so photogenic... I love the delicate taste of them. The seeds do bother me if they interfere with the other textures in a dessert. Beautiful post.

LyB, I'm glad to hear that you changed your mind since I only tried raspberries very recently - they are not that common around here - and I love them!

I have made and posted some of Lynn's recipes but my list never gets shorter. ;)

Gigi said...

Grace said...

I love raspberries so muc that sometimes I go buy some for a dessert and they never make it home, especially if I take the scenic route! Lovely sherbet!

What a showstopper! That sherbet looks so lovely! I could sure use some right now. I'm roasting!

The seeds bother me a little sometimes, but not enough for me to stop eating them! I love these velvety bundles of goodness. You're sherbet looks absolutely delicious!

Yum! I'm trying to gather as many raspberry recipes as I can - the big bush in my alley is weighed down by a great bumper crop. This month's Sugar High Friday theme is berries, and I can't wait to see what people come up with. I wish I had an ice cream maker, though!

The color of the sherbet is incredible - love the way it looks next the green mint...that's what summer is all about...

I'll be waiting patiently (maybe) for the marinated olives...

Erinn said...

I love raspberries! And your photos are delicious as well, the scoop with the mint leaves? Yum! Glad you found a way to enjoy on of my favorite fruits!

RecipeGirl said...

Yeah, I agree... there is nothing like a great sprinkle of fresh and juicy raspberries. My hubby is afraid of the seeds.

We had everbearing raspberries at the house which means berries almost all summer long:D

Cookie baker Lynn said...

Isn't it funny how we change our taste as things get older?
Your sherbet looks fantastic. Mmmmmm!

Elle said...
