Strawberry Basil Sorbet

Nickname: You Say BAY-sil, and I say BAA-sil....

I don't usually go for sorbet myself, but this recipe from Scoopalicious looked very intriguing. So Cheryl and I made a batch to take to Cathy's 4th of July picnic.

It's one of those flavors that keeps you paying attention. You can't just go on autopilot, "Yep, I'm eatin' strawberry, yep.... whoa! Basil!" So it's kind of fun in that way.

The one thing I'd add to the recipe is that it's probably worth straining out any remaining basil leaves before you freeze it. At least, my immersion blender couldn't really catch them all, so instead they clumped up in the ice cream maker and had to be picked out later.
