1. Prepare a simple syrup with the water and sugar by combining both in a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook mixture until the sugar is fully dissolved. Once the simple syrup is ready, add the salt and the raspberries.
2. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture until smooth. Strain half of the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Use a spatula to aid in passing the purée through the strainer. Remove seeds and repeat with the second half. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, or overnight.
3. Turn on the Cuisinart® ice cream maker; pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. The sorbet will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the sorbet to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
