Sweet Tomato Sorbet

Sweet Tomato Sorbet created by Ambervim

This is an old Sunset recipe - remember, tomatoes are actually fruits! I like the presentation of bicolored sorbet for this refreshing unusual amuse bouche - just need to arrange how to store the first while making the second. I plan to try with white, green, black, orange & red tomatoes as the garden kicks into gear this summer, varying color & complexity of the tomatoes with the meal. Will try with different types of basil - Genovese, Purple ruffles, mouse eared as well. Prep time doesn't include freezing time.

    This is a very delicate and lucious taste. I did not have basil, so I used cilantro. It could be used at any point in a meal. I can't wait to try it with basil. It will be as good as your tomato.
