Lime Basil Sorbet

Lime Basil Sorbet

This easy, cool summer treat ends any meal with a clean, refreshing, citrusy note. You only need four ingredients: limes (about 15), light corn syrup, sugar, and basil leaves. Tip: A traditional salt and ice electric freezer works best for this sorbet, as opposed to a tabletop freezer, which won’t freeze the mixture firmly enough.

Works best with: Sweet Italian or lemon basil
