White House Raspberry Sherbet (1887)

  • 2 quarts of raspberries
  • 1 cupful of sugar
  • 1-1/2 pint of water
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 tablespoonful of gelatine
Mash the berries and sugar together, and let them stand for two hours.  Soak the gelatine in cold water, and cover. Add 1 pint of water to the berries, and strain. 

Dissolve the gelatine in a half a pint of boiling water, add this to the strained mixture, and freeze.
