Hey Marcela...the beautiful part about this...you don't need an ice cream machine!! You can just freeze it in a glass bowl or a stainless steel one!! Enjoy!

Glad to hear you can just freeze this, as our ice cream maker was sadly drowned in a flood at our former house (which is why it is our former house) -- meaning, when you live on a river, don't store things in the basement.

But this looks great... I love combining herbs with fruits -- it gives such depth to the sweetness.

Thanks for visiting That Old House!

Oh. does this look good!! The classes look like fun too! ;-)

When you say "rose geraniums", are you talking about a type of geranium or the color of one. I don't want to use something inedible, but then again, most of my cooking is!

I'm not really a huge fan of flower-y scents in my food, but it does seem like a fun class. And the color of the sorbet is gorgeous!
