Gently pressing or crushing the mint sprigs with a spoon releases the mint's fragrant oils and amps up the flavor in this sorbet. When buying fresh mint, look for bright green, crisp leaves with no signs of wilting. Fresh mint can also be frozen for later use. Simply rinse the leaves, pat dry, and freeze in a zip-top plastic freezer bag. The leaves will darken once they're frozen, but that won't affect the flavor. When you need to use some, just pull out what you need, and return the rest to the freezer.
