Recipe: Fresh Blackberry Elderflower Sorbet
- Wash and dry berries, and whirl them in the food processor until pureed, about 15-30 seconds. Put puree into a 4-cup measuring cup. It will make about 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups puree.
- In another measuring cup, add sugar and water and stir to dissolve. (No need to heat it; the sugar will dissolve.) Stir in lemon juice, St. Germain and salt. Pour sugar mixture into berry mixture, stir to combine, and refrigerate 30-60 minutes, until chilled.
- Pour chilled mixture into ice cream freezer and freeze, following manufacturer’s instructions. Mine took about 25-30 minutes to freeze properly.
- When done, serve sorbet and eat immediately, or scoop it into a container with a tight lid and freeze for longer storage.
- Serves 6-8. Small portions are perfect.
- This sorbet has seeds in it. If you cannot tolerate seeds, strain the puree through a fine sieve after you whirl it.
- I found my small food processor perfect for this job. I pureed the berries in two batches.
- My usual high score of 5 stars didn’t suffice, so I declare this a 10-star dessert!
If you don’t have or can’t find St. Germain Liqueur, feel free to substitute a blackberry liqueur, Cassis or Chambord. The alcohol helps the mixture from freezing rock hard and helps to prevent ice crystals. St. Germain makes a delightful cocktail, as well, so you won’t have trouble using the rest of it. Or send it to me.
