lemon basil

There's a judge here who comes and gets gelato at the caffe all the time. He's always smiling and always happy! Last week he asked if John could custom-make some sorbet (sorbetto) for him using the fresh lemon basil from his garden.

John did some research and calculated the possible ratio for all the ingredients, and said yes.

The lemon basil was so fresh and pretty!

Saturday morning the judge brought some beautiful lemon basil! We were able to a little over two pints with about 20 grams of basil leaves. I tasted some of it and it was absolutely fabulous! We may consider carry it at the caffe some time.
