August 15: Assumption Blueberry and Blessed Thyme Sorbet

1 fun story about St. Thomas the Apostle and the Assumption:

While preaching the Gospel in India, Saint Thomas received tried to return West for departure of Mary from her earthly life; he did not make it until the third day after she was laid to rest. Approaching her tomb, he was astounded to see her radiant living body ascend! She tossed her belt to him as a sign of hope, and Thomas made haste to announce to the forlorn apostles that she, too, was risen from the dead.

Ironic, huh? The one apostle who had doubted Jesus rising from the dead and had to touch His side is now the one to give physical evidence of Mary’s Assumption!

1 tip for this recipe:

1. If freezing overnight, cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and let it sit out at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.

2. I used thyme to taste, so every few seconds after blending the sorbet, I would stop to taste. I probably would have added too little if it weren’t for that!

Frozen blueberries (12-18 ounces)
Fresh thyme, to taste (and blessed, of course!)
1/4 cup honey

1. With a food processor or blender, blend the blueberries, thyme, and honey until thoroughly combined. Pour into a rectangular loaf pan and smooth into an even layer.
2. Freeze for 2 hours, or until frozen but still soft enough for scooping.
