Fresh Blueberry Sherbet
photo by MarthaStewartWanabe
- Ready In:
- 3hrs 15mins
- 4 cups blueberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- Make sure your ice cream maker's freezer bowl is frozen solid (you don't want to hear even the slightest sloshing noise when shaken). Keep in the freezer until absolutely ready to pour mixture into the machine.
- Into a 5-quart capacity food processor, using the chopping blade, place blueberries, sugar and lemon juice. Puree until smooth and foamy. Then pour in heavy whipping cream and pulse 3-5 times until mixture thickens slightly.
- Using a fine wire mesh sieve, strain for a smoother consistency. If you don't mind a naturally pulpy texture, don't worry about straining.
- Place mixture into the freezer tub of your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturers instructions for freezing. It took only 15 minutes for my machine to churn and freeze.
- With a spatula, turn sherbet into a freezer container. Freeze for 3-5 hours or until desired texture.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am 33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have a beautiful 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. I am amazed at how quickly our kids are growing and developing. I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as preservatives, hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc. With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed. I'm doing the best I can to protect my family from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive. I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
