Blueberry Ginger Sorbet Recipe

This blueberry sorbet is all about fresh berries at their peak. It's silky smooth with a bit of sweet crunch from blueberry seeds.

A note of warning: blueberry seeds are finicky, and even careful pouring through a high quality strainer can leave a few errant crunchy bits in your purée. But consider them a textural blessing; little pieces of skin and seeds are the chocolate chips of the berry world. You'll be happy to have them there.
