Mix 250ml of the sirup into the pureed berries and taste. If it is not sweet enough add a bit more. How much of the sirup you add depends on how sweet the berries are as well as personal taste.
Place in fridge for at least 3 hours.
Freeze sorbet in ice cream machine according to manufacturers description.  My machine suggests to freeze for 60 min but I prefer to set it to 40 min and then remove the smooth but soft sorbet and put it in a container in the freezer till we want some. Leave the sorbet out on the table for 10 min before portioning it out.
