Blackberry Lavender Sorbet

Description

Experience the sophisticated and aromatic flavors of our Blackberry Lavender Sorbet. This delightful dessert combines ripe blackberries with a hint of lavender for a floral twist, creating a refreshingly light sorbet that's perfect for warm days or as an elegant dessert option. Sweetened with honey, this sorbet not only tantalizes your taste buds but also offers a natural and healthful alternative to traditional sweet treats.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh or dried lavender flowers
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine blackberries, water, and lavender flowers. Cook until the blackberries are soft and begin to break down, about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly. Sweeten with honey while still warm.
  3. Blend the mixture until smooth, then strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds and lavender pieces.
  4. Pour the strained liquid into a shallow dish and freeze for about 2 hours, until it begins to firm up.
  5. Scrape the semi-frozen mixture with a fork to break up ice crystals, then return to the freezer.
  6. Repeat the scraping process every 30 minutes for about 2-3 more hours until the sorbet is smooth and fluffy.
  7. Serve the sorbet immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks.
