This is very delightful. A wonderful way to use blueberries. I didn't find it was sour, but maybe my blueberries were sweeter. Actually, for my taste, I'd increase the lemon juice a little. I'll certainly be making this again. I can see it now... hot summer day on the deck, sipping Blueberry Lemonade. Thanks Sandangel for a lovely recipe. Made during the Spring PAC 2009 Event.
Very good! Very sour, but good. This was my first time making lemonade and it turned out well! Made for PAC Spring '09
