Preparation steps

1.

Halve the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Rinse lime in hot water, wipe dry, then halve and cut 1 half into slices.

2.

Rinse lemon balm and shake dry. Reserve 1-2 sprigs for garnish. Place the rest in a bowl.

3.

Bring the vanilla bean and seeds, lime slices, sugar, grape juice and 450 ml (approximately 2 scant cups) of water to a boil in a pot, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

4.

Add the lemon balm to the pot and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Then pass the liquid through a sieve into a shallow baking dish and place in the freezer.

5.

When the liquid starts to freeze at the edge, mix with an immersion blender. Repeat the process frequently as the mixture freezes for 6 hours; the more often it is mixed, the finer the texture.
