Blueberry and Buttermilk Sherbet

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 pint (12 ounces) blueberries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup cold buttermilk
2 egg whites

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until sugar dissolves, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the blueberries and cook for 5 minutes, until blueberries are soft and pulpy. Stir in the lemon juice and chill 1 hour.

Stir in the buttermilk and transfer to a freezer container. Cover and freeze for about 1 hour, or until mixture begins to set around the edges. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Turn sherbet mixture into a bowl and beat until smooth. Fold in egg whites, return mixture to the container, and freeze until firm, about 6 hours or overnight.

Alternately, combine chilled blueberry mixture with buttermilk and freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer´┐Żs directions. Transfer to a freezer container, fold in the egg whites, and freeze until firm, about 6 hours, or overnight.

To serve, soften slightly, then scoop into stemmed parfait glasses. Serve with oatmeal cookies.

Makes 8 servings.
