Blackberry-Lime Sorbet

Very nice fruity sorbet. The lime juice adds a nice touch besides the blackberries.

Ingredients for the blackberry-lime sorbet:
450 g blackberries
1 leaf of gelatine
150 g caster sugar
180 ml water
180 ml freshly squeezed lime juice (about 9 limes)

Preparing the blackberry-lime sorbet:
Heat the sugar and the water to create a syrup. When the sugar is completely dissolved in the water take it off the heat. Bloom the leaf of gelatin in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes then drop it into the syrup and stir until it dissolves. Let the syrup and gelatine mixture cool to room temperature.
Puree the blackberries in a blender and then pass them through a fine sieve to get rid of the seeds. Mix in the syrup and gelatine mixture with the blackberry puree then add the lime juice.
Chill the mixture thoroughly (I put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes) and then churn in your ice cream maker according to the instructions.
