It’s blueberry time!  This is a nice light tasting sorbet, perfect for a hot summer day.  I used fresh blueberries, but you can probably use frozen (thawed) blueberries, too. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/3 cup water

2/3 cup sugar

4 cups blueberries

1/2 lemon, juiced

Directions

1. In a saucepan, combine the water and sugar.  Over a medium heat stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.

2. Using a food processor, puree the blueberries.  Pour the pureed blueberries through a fine mesh sieve to remove the skins.
