Raspberries with Peach-Basil Sorbet

Here's a twist on peach Melba, the classic dessert of poached peaches with raspberry sauce. We turn juicy summer peaches instead into a velvety sorbet spiked with basil and serve it with fresh raspberries for the perfect ending to a summer meal.

Cooking Light JUNE 2014

  • Yield: Serves 6 (serving size: 1/2 cup sorbet and about 1/3 cup raspberries)
  • Hands-on: 10 Minutes
  • Total: 1 Hour, 55 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup packed, coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe peaches
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Dash of salt
  • 12 ounces fresh raspberries

Preparation

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; stir until sugar dissolves. Let stand 15 minutes. Pour through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids.

2. Cook peaches in a large pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Place peaches in a bowl of ice water until cool. Peel peaches; remove pits and chop flesh. Place chopped peaches and lemon juice in a blender; process until smooth. Stir peach mixture and salt into basil mixture. Chill 1 hour.
