After doing a thorough search for the perfect blueberry sorbet recipe, I discovered this one by Emeril Lagasse. Simple and perfect. I hope you enjoy it! (**Cooking time is approximate cooling and freezing time)
- Make a simple syrup combining sugar and water in heavy saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat; reduce to medium-low heat and simmer, stirring until sugar has dissolved (6-8 minutes)-(** This step can be made ahead and kept refrigerated until ready to use).
- Cool completely.
- Combine blueberries, simple syrup and juice from 2 fresh lemons in food processor.
- Puree until smooth.
- Transfer puree to ice cream maker freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
- Put into freezable container and place in freezer until firm.
- Makes 1 quart.
The flavor of this sorbet was really good, but it was SOOOO SWEET. I think next time I'll cut the sugar a bit. I served this semi hard over the top of vanilla ice cream instead of just eating it by itself and it was really great.
Incredible flavor-easy recipe! I simmered the blueberries in the simple syrup (I think this intensifies the flavor) before cooling it. Once cool I added the lemon juice and put it all in the blender. It froze to a great consistency in my ice cream maker and was a big hit with my family. My aunt said it was the best sorbet she has ever tasted!
This is amazing. I used brown sugar and fresh berries. My children had it for lunch and begged me to make more for dinner!
