    I made this exactly to the letter for my husband's birthday. I used my kitchen aid ice cream attachment. It took about 10 minutes to fully form. It's exactly what we wanted. I am going to blend this up with a little orange vodka for a tasty slushy drink, but it's great by itself!

    I agree with Logically Locked...definitely too sweet. That may have been partially due to some amazingly sweet blueberries...the best Ive had in years. While it was churning I tasted it and decided to turn it into sherbet and cut the sweetness. I added about 1/3-1/2 cup of heavy cream and its awesome.

    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!
