Rhubarb sorbet

My gardening neighbor has rhubarb.  He plants many things but doesn't cook so I am welcome to take what I want from his plot.  Today I picked a bunch of rhubarb and found a sorbet recipe.

Rhubarb Sorbet

5 cups chopped rhubarb
1 quart water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tblsp lemon juice

combine the chopped rhubarb and water in a pot and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 10 min.  Pour through a strainer and press on the rhubarb to get out all the juice.  Discard the rhubarb remains.  Mix in sugars and lemon juice and chill.  Freeze in ice cream maker.

  1. Stacey,
    I found your blog while hunting for some new ways of cooking with rhubarb. I've made rhubarb sorbet before and think it is really lovely. The colour so amazing. I have no doubt that this is delightful.

    I also really enjoyed the tour of what growing in your garden, especially the nifty screen idea. Very clever. I will def. be back.
