Strawberry-mint sorbet


Strawberry-mint sorbet
For this strawberry and mint-flavoured sorbet, we will be using an unusual method: blending the strawberries with mint leaves.

This mixture is then left overnight for the flavours to mingle before being strained and then churned.

This makes a delicious sorbet with its full-on strawberry flavour boosted by a definite mintiness.
