Blueberry and Lemon Ices

Ingredients

BLUEBERRY ICE

  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup white grape juice
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

LEMON ICE:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)

Method

  1. Blueberry Ice: In a blender or food processor, combine the blueberries and grape juice and pulse until mixed, about 30 seconds.
  2. Working in batches, strain the mixture into a medium-size bowl through a medium mesh strainer. Add the maple syrup, lemon juice, and salt to the bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 9- by 13-inch pan, cover it with plastic wrap, and freeze it for 1 hour. Remove the pan and scrape the mixture’s frozen edges into the center with a fork. Freeze it another hour, then scrape the ice crystals into the center again.
  4. Return the pan to the freezer for at least 1 more hour, or overnight. If the mixture is too firm to scoop when you’re ready to serve, scrape it to loosen the crystals. Makes 4 cups.
  5. Lemon Ice: Bring the water, sugar, and salt to a simmer over high heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.
  6. Pour the liquid into a 9- by 13-inch pan and let it cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  7. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap, then freeze and scrape as you did for the Blueberry Ice.
  8. Makes 3 cups.
