Sweet And Savory

Holy smokes, people! The sweet and savory herbaliciousness simply does not stop. The dam of creativity has burst and the clever juices are now flooding Dulltown, washing away bad ideas and mud huts.

Last night, we brought into this world Strawberry Basil sorbet. Every bite is like listening to an orchestra. Perfect harmony washing over you. A beautiful sound. And if you focus, you can pick up the individual notes of strawberry (horns), basil (percussion) and sugar (flutes).

Here's how you bring more love into this world:

- Make some more of that simple syrup.
- Trim the top off of some strawberries and juice 'em up.
- Combine those liquids and add 1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil to the festivities.
- Freeze like we talked about last time.

Good gracious, we are on to something with fruit and herb sorbets. Ben and Jerry called this morning and they were all, "Look at you two go! We will buy your recipes for $5 million each." I told them no sale. Next up, lemon cilantro.
