       Title: Mint Sorbet
  Categories: Veg-cook, August
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       6 lg Sprigs of mint
       6 T  Sugar
   1 1/4 c  Water
            Juice of one large lemon
       1    Egg white
       4    Sprigs mint to decorate
  
   Wash the mint and shake it dry. Heat the sugar and water together until the
   sugar is melted.  Add the mint and leave it to steep in the sugar syrup off
   the heat for about twenty minutes to half an hour. Taste it to see if the
   mint taste has developed enough. If it’s not strong enough you can reheat
   the mixture to the boil again and then let it stand for another ten
   minutes.
   
   When it tastes about right to you, strain the liquid into a rigid container
   and add the lemon juice.  Leave to cool, then freeze until it’s semi-frozen
   (about 45 minutes to an hour).  Beat the egg white until it’s stiff enough
   to stand up in peaks (an electric whisk is good for this) and fold it
   gently into the semi-frozen mixture. Return to the freezer for about an
   hour. By this time it should have formed a fairly firm mush. Spoon it into
   glasses and decorate with the mint sprigs. You can vary this recipe by
   using grapefruit juice instead of lemon and using a bit less water and a
   bit less mint.
