Refrigerator Berry

So after everyone had left to go back to their homes, I realized that I had a whole refrigerator full of berries: strawberries, blueberries, and cherries.

Despite my best efforts, I could not eat them all before they were going to spoil. So I did what any normal person would do and whipped up a batch of Refrigerator Berry Sorbet (I think this is the best recipe name I have made up thus far!).

The best part of this sorbet is that you don't need to use the exact same berries as I did; improv as you see fit.

Just like in my last sorbet recipe, Honey Orange Peach Sorbet, you will need an ice cream machine. If you do not have one and are refusing to buy one ( a thought that is beyond me) you could do this like a granita-- pour into a shallow pan, freeze for 30 minutes, scrape with a fork, and repeat until frozen.

Refrigerator Berry Sorbet
Yield: 1 quart of frozen delicious-ness

1/2 pt Blueberries
1 pt Strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 pt Cherries, pitted and halved
1 c Water
1 c Sugar
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Combine all of the ingredients in a sauce pot.
Simmer for 15 minutes.
Blend in a blender until smooth.
Strain through a fine strainer, if desired. I left all the pieces in mine.
Chill overnight.
Freeze either in your ice cream machine or granita style.
Eat in bed and enjoy!

Now that I'm a grown-up I can eat in bed :)
