Blueberry Sorbet - Jamieson Cobleigh

rj_anderson recently asked for recipes for blueberries. I recently made blueberry sorbet with fresh, locally grown blueberries. reveilles said it tasted like essence of blueberry.
  • 2 1/2 cups (12 1/2 ounces) fresh blueberries pureed with 1/2 cup cold water until smooth
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice from 1 large lemon
  • 1 tablespoon vodka
  1. Combine berry puree, sugar, lemon juice, and alcohol in large bowl. Stir on and off for several minutes until sugar has dissolved. (Or, to speed chilling process in next step, combine ingredients in a metal bowl set over a larger bowl filled with ice water.) Rub finger along bottom of bowl to see if sugar has dissolved.
  2. Pour mixture into small container, straining it if necessary. Seal and refrigerate until mixture is no more than 40F. (If mixture has been stirred over a bowl of ice water, it may already be cold enough, and this step may be omitted.)
  3. Pour chilled mixture into container of an ice cream machine and churn until frozen.
  4. Scoop frozen sorbet into a container. Seal and transfer container to freezer for several hours to allow sorbet to firm up.

Yum. But since I can't see myself running out and buying a bottle of vodka just for this recipe (all I have by way of alcohol in the house is red and white wine), is there some other substitute you'd recommend?

Oh, wait, never mind, I don't have an ice cream machine either. On with the recipe quest...

I have a recipe for blueberry cobbler I haven't tried. It is from Cook's Illustrated magazine and I have had very good luck with their recipes. If I sent it to you as a PDF file, would you be able to read it?

Sure thing -- at least I've never had trouble with PDF files before.

Mind you, I currently have the "Wild Blueberry Crisp" recipe from this page baking in the oven, but if it doesn't turn out as well as I'm hoping (the picture certainly looks delicious, but you never know), a cobbler might be just the ticket. Thanks!

It looks yummy, but I don't think I'd care for it. It doesn't really seem like a crisp to me. I would expect a crisp to have nuts or oatmeal in the topping to give it a crunch.

Yes, I was about three-quarters through making it when I thought, "Waittaminit, where's the rolled oats?" However, as there is a fair bit of brown sugar in with the flour and whatnot, perhaps there's some sugary crunchiness to it. I'll keep you posted.

You could use white wine. The purpose of the vodka is to introduce alcohol to make the sorbet easier to scoop. Vodka is nice since it is pretty flavorless, so it won't affect the taste of the finished sorbet.
