Blackberry Lemon-Lime Sorbet

When I first saw this recipe I was envious that Annie found blackberries for so cheap. The next week when I was grocery shopping I found blackberries for $1.09 a pint. Needless to say, I stocked up and knew exactly the sorbet I would make. This sorbet was originally supposed to be blackberry lime, but when my limes didn’t produce enough juice I added lemon. The sorbet turned out wonderfully and was perfectly tart and sweet at the same time.


Blackberry Lemon-Lime Sorbet
3/4 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup water
4 Cups blackberries, fresh or frozen
3/4 Cups freshly squeezed lime juice
splash of tequila (optional)

In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Puree the blackberries in a blender or food processor with the sugar syrup. Press the mixture through a large mesh sieve to remove the seeds, then stir the lime juice into the sweetened puree. Add a splash of tequila, if desired.

Chill the mixture thoughroughly, then freeze according to your ice cream makers instructions.

    Ok, you guys are compelling me to check my grocery store this weekend to see if I’m also that lucky with blackberries. So jealous!
