My mother and I made this for pudding last night down in Wiltshire... We found the recipe online and used her new ice cream maker to do so! Delicious and Refreshing; even Tom liked it who doesn't eat puddings...

• 3¼ cups water
• 2 cups basil leaves, gently packed
• 1 cup fine sugar
• ¼ cup fresh lime juice

1. Bring water to a boil in small saucepan. Add basil leaves; cook 10 seconds. Drain and plunge basil into cold water. Drain again.

2. Puree sugar, water, lime juice and blanched basil leaves in blender on high speed for about 1 minute, or until you have a smooth, bright-green liquid. Pour through fine-meshed strainer.

3. Freeze immediately in an ice cream maker until slushy-firm. Scoop into a storage container and freeze until firm enough to scoop.
