Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Rhubarb Sorbet

Recipe for Rhubarb Sorbet

I am sorry if you are sick of my rhubarb posts. I promise I will get off my kick soon! I just made rhubarb sorbet though and it is out of this world good! I had no idea it would be so tasty. I am still kind of surprised!

I used a recipe I saw on Simply Recipes. It was really easy. The only not so fun part was straining the rhubarb. It just took some time, but really nothing to complain about. I chilled the base overnight and churned it up the next day in our Cuisinart dream machine.

The results were incredible! The sorbet was SO creamy. It tasted more like gelato than sorbet, but without any cream! I was hoping for a deeper red color, but oh well, I am partial to pink anyways. The rhubarb flavor was perfect too, not too sweet, just right! I loved the kick from the orange zest too!

This is one of my new favorite treats. It's very light, refreshing, and perfect for a hot day! I am sure it would be a hit at a Memorial Day BBQ, so try it and impress your friends and family. Happy Holiday weekend everyone! I LOVE long weekends!

Rhubarb Sorbet
Recipe from Garrett McCord of Vanilla Garlic
Saw on Simply Recipes

(Printable Recipe)

3 1/2 cups of chopped fresh rhubarb (4-5 stalks)
2 1/2 cups of water

1 2/3 cups of sugar

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoons of orange zest
2 tablespoons of corn syrup

Place chopped rhubarb, sugar, water, salt, and orange zest in a large saucepan. Stir it all up. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover it and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. The rhubarb will get tender and start to dissolve if you stir it. It will smell good too:)

Cool the rhubarb mixture for about 10 minutes. Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth. You will need to do this in a couple of batches. It will get a little messy, but that is fun, right? Press through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of the pulp. Stir in the corn syrup. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. I let mine chill overnight.

Process in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions. The sorbet will be soft and creamy! Put in a container and freeze.

Makes about one quart.

Aside from sounding really delish, it is such a pretty color! Sounds refreshing! I would make a sorbet spritzer with it! A scoop of sorbet in a glass and pour over some sparkling water, or sparkling wine. Yum!

all your rhubarb has me thinking about some candy I brought back from Harrod's in London--they are a hard candy with gooey-ness inside, flavored "Rhubarb Custard" and are surprisingly delicious! I say long live Rhubarb!! (this is littletweet, BTW).

Oh, hey, is it really only 1/2 cup rhubard, or did another amount (because is says 1/2 cups) get deleted? Might be a typo.
