Cool, refreshing and oh-so delicious! This Honeysuckle Sorbet is mouth-watering. It is Bill Smith of Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s own personal recipe. But us San Antonian’s need something cool and refreshing to get us through the hot summer, too! This recipe includes plenty of bug bites and time, but it is awesome for the kids and an easy recipe for them to help with! Who doesn’t love picking honeysuckle this time of year? Enjoy!
