The combination of basil and strawberries sounds strange, but it is a match made in flavor heaven. This isn’t a savory dessert, but it does have an aromatic, herbaceous note from the basil. We recommend getting Thai basil if you can get your hands on it.
One important thing to note is that you need to remove the leaves from the stems. Do not blend the stems into the sorbet because they are very bitter and will create an unpleasant flavor. We hope you like this unique dessert!
