This past weekend I took part in the craft beer trend and had a few amazing selections that kind of changed my view point on the beverage. However, my pumpkin and blueberry ale won’t be offered at bars all the time and I kinda would like something to always remember them by. Enter this blueberry beer sorbet recipe from Jen of Beantown Baker and a sweet, new way to enjoy your favorite beer.
4 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar
16 oz beer of your choice
In a sauce pan over medium high heat, add the blueberries and the sugar.
With a potato masher, mash and stir the blueberries until well macerated and combined with the sugar.
Allow the mixture to come to a boil, stirring and mashing until all the blueberries have broken down, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Place the blueberry mixture in the fridge until completely cool, at least 2 hours.
Remove blueberry mixture from fridge and stir in beer. Process in ice cream makesr following manufacturers’ instructions for 30-40 minutes until firm.
Place in a freezer safe container and chill until ready to serve.
This paired after your favorite burger and fries will no doubt leave you feeling satisfied. And just in case you require a bit more beer I’m sure you won’t find yourself overwhelmed if you pair the meal with a blueberry ale…
