The idea of basil in ice cream seems odd but it really is very good. A nice refreshing summer treat that is "different".
I have been looking for a way to use chocolate mint from my garden for years! I used chocolate mint leaves instead of the basil, and added vanilla as the liquer. You have to be careful not to overcook this. It went from almost coating to no longer coating very quickly. It was very tasty though!
This recipe was great. I added some more chopped basil just before freezing to increase the flavor. All of my friends and family loved it.
