What you’ll need to make rhubarb sorbet
- fresh rhubarb
- lemon juice
First, grab the freshest rhubarb you can find. Then, slice it into pieces and throw into a small pot. Cover with water and stir in the sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, then let it cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is nice and soft. Let it cool for a few minutes.
Once the mixture has cooled, pull out your blender or food processor. Scrape the contents of the pot into the blender. Blend until completely smooth.
Place in a bowl or container and refrigerate the mixture until chilled through. I allow this to happen overnight. Once the mixture has chilled completely, churn in your ice cream maker.
So simple, a little sweet, totally smooth and irresistible.
