This sorbet is a combination of fruit puree and herbal syrup. Rose geranium has a particular affinity with strawberries and seems to intensify their flavor.</p>
<p>• ¾ cup sugar<br />
• ¾ cup water<br />
• 8 medium-sized rose geranium leaves<br />
• 4 cups ripe strawberries, hulled and washed<br />
• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice</p>
<p>1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan.<br />
<br />
2. Drop in rose geranium leaves, cover pan and remove it from heat. After 15 minutes, strain syrup, pushing down on leaves to extract flavor.<br />
<br />
3. Puree strawberries with syrup and lemon juice in blender or food processor. Freeze in ice cream maker until slushy-firm. Scoop into storage container and freeze until firm enough to scoop.</p>
