YumYum Divas YumYum Recipes: Strawberry or Raspberry and Lemon Thyme Ice, contributed by TwinLakesChef

Recipe Title: Strawberry or Raspberry and Lemon Thyme Ice

Contributed by: TwinLakesChef

Note from the Diva
When ripe red berries are out of season, substitute loose-pack frozen raspberries.

One cup of lemon balm may seem like a lot, but it's not. These small leaves
offer a light lemon scent and a mild lemon flavor.

List of Ingredients
1-1/4 cups cranberry juice
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lemon balm leaves
5 cups sliced strawberries

Preparation
1. Combine the cranberry juice and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat and
stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the 1 cup lemon balm leaves to saucepan.
Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain into a
large mixing bowl; discard lemon balm. Stir in sliced strawberries. Cool
mixture to room temperature.

2. Place half of the strawberry mixture in a blender container or food
processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Transfer mixture to
a nonmetal freezer container. Blend or process remaining mixture; add it to
the freezer container.

3. Cover and freeze mixture about 4 hours or until almost firm. Break mixture
into small chunks; transfer to a chilled bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until
smooth but not melted. Return to container. Cover and freeze for 6 hours or
until firm.

4. To serve, scoop mixture into individual dessert dishes. If desired, garnish
each serving with lemon balm leaves.
