5 Easy, Delicious Sorbet Recipes: Basil-Lime Sorbet

Call them sorbets, sherbets, granitas or ices, nothing could be simpler than these herbs on ice.


| June/July 2009


Serves 8 

Blanching the basil leaves before blending the sorbet base gives you an intensely colored and flavored sorbet. Be sure to freeze it immediately after blending or the color will fade.

• 3¼ cups water
• 2 cups basil leaves, gently packed
• 1 cup fine sugar
• ¼ cup fresh lime juice

1. Bring water to a boil in small saucepan. Add basil leaves; cook 10 seconds. Drain and plunge basil into cold water. Drain again.

2. Puree sugar, water, lime juice and blanched basil leaves in blender on high speed for about 1 minute, or until you have a smooth, bright-green liquid. Pour through fine-meshed strainer.

3. Freeze immediately in an ice cream maker until slushy-firm. Scoop into a storage container and freeze until firm enough to scoop.
