Pineapple, Berry, and Mango Sorbet

The weather has finally been acting like summer and there has been a lot of Popsicle eating. Sorbet's are really easy to make and really refreshing. It's also been fun experimenting with different flavors.
Berry Sorbet
4 C fresh or frozen berries
superfine sugar to taste
juice of one lemon
Puree the berries in a food processor until smooth. Add the sugar to taste, and add the lemon juice just to bring out the flavor of the berries. Strain the mixture through a fine wire mesh to extract the seeds from the juice, and churn the mixture in an ice cream freezer until firm. Spoon into a bowl, and freeze until hard.

16 oz frozen or fresh pineapple
