Peaches with Basil Sugar

I love the flavors of a mojito, sweet, citrus-y & refreshing.  But why should mojitos have all the fun? Theses peaches with basil sugar taste like a virgin mojito that you can actually sink your teeth into.  Take advantage of your local farmers market & pick up what ever fruit is in season, sprinkle some of this basil sugar on top with a squeeze of citrus & you've got yourself a fresh desert in no time.

  • 1 cup tightly packed fresh herbs (try basil or mint)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 lime or lemon
  • fresh fruit 
Make it:
  1. In a food processor combine herbs & sugar until it looks like green sugar.
  2. Slice fruit & place on dessert dishes.
  3. Sprinkle fruit with herb sugar & squeeze a lime/lemon on top of each pile of fruit.
