This peach and lemon verbena sorbet is fresh and delicious with a hint of lemon.

Ingredients to make the peach and lemon verbena sorbet

  • 150g sugar
  • 150ml water
  • 2 handfuls lemon verbena leaves
  • 700g ripe peaches, washed, cut into quarters with the pips removed
  • Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring it to the boil.

Stir until the sugar is dissolved and add the verbena leaves. Leave off the heat for half an hour to infuse. Purée the peaches in a blender and then pass through a sieve to remove any bits. Remove the verbena leaves from the syrup and add to the puree. Pour into ice trays and freeze until hard. When frozen add the cubes to a food processor and process until smooth. Keep frozen until ready to serve, taking it out 5 minutes before serving to thaw a bit.
