How could I forget the blueberries!

I tried to make blueberry sauce to go with lemon curd, but it was too watery. I gave up and froze it, now I have delicious blueberry mint ice. Its like water ice but with whole berries. Water ice is a philly thing.

To make this, I made a simple syrup of equal parts water and sugar, heated it, dropped in a whole bunch of mint, and let it steep for 15 mins. Then I took the mint out, added a little cornstarch and a pint and a half of blueberries, heated that for a while til a lot of the blues were popped and it looked right, and set it in a pan in the freezer. Scraped it every so often, then put it in a container to be eaten in bed out of with a spoon.

There are few things I enjoy eating more than fruit based frozen things.
Sorbet, ices, etc. Bring it on.
