RECIPE: Let's talk about Lemon Verbena
Lemon Verbena.....the purest lemon smell and flavor of any herb I know. Love, love, love it!
Here's a recipe for lemon verbena sorbet that I have used several times, taken from:
THE HERBFARM COOKBOOK
by Jerry Traunfeld
LEMON VERBENA SORBET
! C. (gently packed) fresh lemon verbena leaves
1 C. superfine sugar
1/4 C. freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 C. cold water
Grind the lemon verbena leaves and sugar together in a food processor until the mixture forms a bright green paste, about 30 seconds; stop to scrape down the sides as necessary. Add the lemon juice and process for 15 seconds longer, then add the water. Strain the resulting liquid through a fine sieve to remove any bits of leaf. Freeze in an ice cream maker acording to directions.
