Honeydew Melon Basil Sorbet

This weekend I had company over for dinner. I wanted to serve something for dessert that had herbs in it. I came up with the perfect thing for this HOT Vegas weather. It is light and refreshing. The color is even inviting. The best part is that it was so simple to make! Here is my recipe for honeydew melon basil sorbet.
Honeydew Mellon Basil Sorbet

1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 honeydew melon
5 large basil leaves, finely minced
2 T lime juice

First make a simple syrup by combining water, sugar and basil. Bring to a boil for one minute and then simmer for about 3 minutes. Let the syrup cool completely. Cut up honeydew melon. Puree the melon in a food processor. Add the lime juice and combine with the simple syrup. Chill the mixture for about an hour. Put mixture into an electric ice cream maker. Serve immediately.
