Serves 2 / Lemon’s zing enhances fresh raspberries in this easy-to-make, homemade version of a classic dessert.
2 cups tightly packed fresh raspberries
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
4 drops lemon zest oil, or 3 teaspoons fresh lemon zest
1. Blend raspberries and jam in a blender or food processor. Press through a sieve to remove seeds. Add lemon juice and oil or zest. Mix well and place into a shallow container. (You can also use ice-cube trays; the cubes pop out easily and can be blended quickly in a processor until smooth.) Cover with plastic, pressing down gently against raspberry purée to remove air. Freeze until solid.
