Strawberry Mint Sorbet Garnished with Fresh Mint

The New York Botanical Garden has a gorgeous showcase called The Edible Garden. It’s an exhibit demonstrating how plants and their glorious bounty go straight to a table. Although in some dishes, they’ll take a detour in a kitchen. The exhibit started June 19 and it will end October 17. Several weekends will feature famous chefs, cooking demonstrations and garden classes. This week’s theme is berry special. I’ve also included recipes for a Strawberry Mint and a Mango Raspberry Sorbet to accompany this week’s theme. The strawberries and raspberries are from the farmer’s market, and the mint is from my urban pottery garden. The mangoes used in this recipe is a favorite variety called Champagne. It’s important to let them fully ripe to enjoy their sweetness. Please enjoy the show. Read more
