Simple Blackberry Sherbet

Oh goodness this was delicious. Simple and easy to make were only an added bonus. I did not make any adjustments on the actual ingredients but I think you could get away with a little less sugar. I think 1 1/2 cups of sugar may be the perfect combination but I'd definitely taste before freezing since some berries can be much sweeter than others . Also this recipe has you processing the sherbet in a food processor right before serving and I did not do that. I purchased the blackberries at Costco where they had a big box of them for $3.99.

Taste of Home magazine June/July 2009 issue

4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
2 cups sugar (I'd suggest 1 1/2 cups unless you want really sweet)
2 cups buttermilk

In a food processor, combine blackberries and sugar; cover and process until smooth. Strain and discard seeds and pulp. Stir in buttermilk. Transfer puree to a 13 inch by 9 inch dish. Freeze for one hour or until edges begin to firm. Stir and return to freezer. Freeze 2 hours longer or until firm.
Just before serving, transfer to a food processor; cover and process 2-3 minutes or until smooth. (I skipped this step.)
