Did you score some fresh blueberries this season already? Balazs and I've been taking countless trips to the market in hunt for them and we have been enjoying a few different takes on them so far. Our favourite is a simple blueberry sorbet that I make each summer. It's super healthy as it's pretty much raw fruit, honey, a bit of corn syrup for the creamy consistence and a tiny amount of lemon juice for refreshment. I tell you, we barely could wait till it got cold enough before the spoons went into action!
Tip: I suggest not skipping on the sieving step. It will make the sorbet beautifully creamy and smooth - promise.
Here is the recipe if you fancy giving it a go:
Homemade Blueberry Sorbet
* 5 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed, stems removed and discarded
* 1/3 cup honey
* 2 Tbsp corn syrup
* 1 teaspoon lemon zest
* 1 Tbsp lemon juice
* Fresh blueberries for garnish
Place the blueberries, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, and corn syrup in a large bowl. Stir and mash with a potato masher. Put the mashed blueberries into a blender and blend for a couple of minutes until smooth. Next, place a sieve over a large bowl and working in batches, press the mixture through the sieve, using a rubber spatula or a spoon. This will catch the tougher and larger pieces of lemon and blueberry peel. Finally, chill the mixture in a container for at least 2 hours in the fridge before eating. Ta dah!
Lovelies, which berries are your favourite? (I am torn between blueberries and raspberries). xo
