After I made the Pear Tart that I shared HERE, I had these babies left over so decided to make a sorbet

I added Blueberries into the mix as well to create this lovely color (am I the only one who thinks that bowl on the right looks like a monkey face?!)

This was quite delicious. If you give it a try, please let me know what you think!


 

Blueberry Pear Sorbet

3 ripe pears, peeled & cored, cut in half lengthwise

1 12 oz. bag frozen blueberries

1 large lemon, juice & zest

3 cups water

1 cup sugar

Place sugar, water, and lemon zest in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer and add the peeled pears. Cook over low heat for about 20 minutes until pears are easily pierced with a knife tip. During the last 5 minutes, add the blueberries. They will start to pop open and release their color and juices into the poaching liquid. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add the lemon juice and zest. Puree the mixture in a blender. You may have to do it in batches. Strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve into a large, clean bowl. Chill the puree until very cold. Freeze in an ice cream maker. Or you can also freeze puree in a large, flat container and break the sorbet up into chunks and place in a food processor to beat up the ice crystals.

PS – The lovely dessert bowls are from Handmade Studio TN. They have the most beautiful dinnerware. Hope you get a chance to check them out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers!
