- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
