Spiced Peach Basil Sorbet

So the same weekend that I had my Canning Party, I also made this sorbet. As I mentioned, a friend had given me a half bushel of Georgia peaches and they were all ripe at once and heading south very quickly.

After making these peach pie bars, the peach jam at the party, then the spicy peach jam (post coming soon), I still had about 15 peaches staring me in the face. Obviously, my mind went straight to ice cream.

Since I’ve been trying to make sorbets, and the last peach sorbet that I made was such a hit, it was a no brainer.

I decided to pair it with basil this time around and spiked it with some Jack Daniels. The alcohol helps the sorbet to not get too icy and the Jack Daniels give a nice spiciness to the sorbet. You can leave it out if you want, but I was glad it was there.

    Mmm, I love watermelon in salad! This could quickly become a main-course salad with a bit of grilled shrimp on top.

    Yum! I just recently made watermelon feta bites with watermelon, feta, balsamic vinegar and mint! It was refreshing and delicious!

    I’ve been really into watermelon + feta combos lately. I am sure this salad was phenomenal (because goat cheese rocks!) 😀

    Yay for watermelon day! I love watermelon and feta, but haven’t tried it with goat cheese… I’m sure it’s just as fabulous. This salad is so pretty!
