Strawberry Basil Gelato for Pass the Cook Book Club

Strawberry Basil Gelato from
Here’s a little something from your childhood that grew up just in time to save your taste buds from another happy hour disappointment at the local Sonic. (Maybe that’s just my local Sonic). And it’s another month of the Pass the Cook Book Club. My little club is finding it’s feet – and I’m finding I need to be a little more organized. But in the end, sharing recipes together is a blast! I’m always curious to see what others are making (and nosy so that I pick something yummy). All the other group members are great and I am really enjoying reading and seeing what everyone else makes. Some people have blogs and post about the recipes, some people don’t and just share them on the group page. It’s really all just about having fun and trying something new at this point.

As for this gelato… All I can say is try it. Our tiny human brains can’t process how epic the flavors will be until you actually take that first bite. And it’s just you, a big batch of gelato, and a spoon after that.

    So funny, I was JUST thinking of making a strawberry basil ice cream flavor… but I never thought to add preserves OR liqueur to it. LOVE that!!!

      The preserves I think went a long way. The splash of liquor you wont ever taste, but it keeps things creamy.

    Kita, another awesome month! I’m so not a frozen dessert fan, but I’m already contemplating making the Margarita Pie again. LOVED it! And with all the recommendations for this strawberry creation, this beauty is high on my list as well. Thanks for putting the club together, though it’s increasing my cookbook costs (I couldn’t resist and had to buy this book…!).

    Awesome idea for a blog group – I have way too many cookbooks that I fail to break into too! This gelato looks amazing, yum! :)

    You should see my basil I am growing. I was torn between this recipe and the Margarita pie. Honestly the deciding vote was the many limes sitting leftover on my counter from my beverages I made for my blog:-) Soooooo that means I must make this lovely recipe! Your gelato looks wonderful! I am glad to hear this group is growing, I really love being a part of the group! Hugs, Terra
