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!
