Recipe of the Month

Fresh Lime-Basil Sorbet
Lakewinds Country Manor Circa 1881, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

Serves: 12

Ingredients
1 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice (8-10 limes)
1 cup water
1 cup simple syrup (1cup sugar + 1 cup water, boiled then cooled)
1 dozen basil leaves, whole
1 egg white (optional)

Steps
Combine all ingredients into a freezer-friendly container, and freeze 6-8 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer and allow to soften a little.

Put chunks of frozen mixture into a food processor and process until all crystals have disappeared and mixture is smooth. Re-pack into container and keep frozen until needed. This will keep for up to 2 months.

If you prefer a lighter, less icy sorbet, add 1 egg white during processing.

"As much as I would like to sell gift certificates that are exclusively for my inn, I realize that we are not the perfect gift for everybody. This year, I gave everyone who enquired about a gift certificate an option of a GC to be used exclusively with me or good at any B&B in the BedandBreakfast.com membership. Many liked the idea of having choices, and I sold them the BedandBreakfast.com gift card. I got the commission up front, and I donít have to worry about the liability. I also get most of the face value back should the gift card be used at my inn. The process was quick and easy. I am very happy with the results and will continue to offer BedandBreakfast.com cards as an option." Mike Venturini, Munro House B&B Spa, Jonesville, MI
