Blueberry-Meyer Lemon Sorbet with Thyme

This gorgeously-hued dessert highlights the unique flavour of Meyer lemons. We serve it in hollowed-out lemon halves for a pretty presentation.

Ingredients

2⁄3 cup(s) water
1⁄2 cup(s) sugar
8 pinch fresh thyme, 8 sprigs, plus extra for garnish
2⁄3 cup(s) fresh lemon juice, from 5-6 Meyer lemons
3 cup(s) unsweetened frozen blueberries
1 tsp lemon zest, optional

Instructions

Combine water, sugar and thyme sprigs in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 5 minutes. Let cool; then chill completely in refrigerator, 1 hour.

Remove thyme sprigs and then pour chilled sugar mixture, lemon juice and frozen blueberries into a blender; puree until smooth. Immediately transfer mixture to an ice cream maker; process according to manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze until ready to eat. Serve with optional garnish of lemon zest and fresh thyme.
