2 yummy gems for blueberries sent in by member Susan . Thanks for sharing!

Blueberry Granita

Prepare a simple syrup which is one part granulated sugar and one part water and dissolve on medium heat. Can also be tried with agave nectar but use less. Let cool.
In a blender or food processor puree 4 cups of blueberries. Stir into the syrup in a shallow stainless steel pan. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Periodically scrape it with a spoon.
Delicious with vanilla ice cream!
