Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

Another tasty little treat that I made for my ultimate girls weekend with my sisters and my mom is this Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet. I was surprised to see rhubarb in the grocery store late last week. I’m having a hard time adjusting to when produce is in season here in Ohio. It’s surprisingly different than what I’m used to from living in Boston.

So as I was strolling the produce section, the rhubarb caught my eye. A couple of weeks ago I had picked out this recipe to make, but couldn’t find rhubarb anywhere. I just assumed I had missed the season. I guess I was just looking too soon in the summer or something…

Everyone knows that strawberries and rhubarb play nicely together. It’s no surprise that this sorbet has a tart bite to it from the rhubarb and a sweet finish from the strawberry.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

Yield: 1 1/2 quarts


3/4 pound rhubarb, trimmed
3/4 cup sugar
10 ounces fresh strawberries
1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice


Cut the rhubarb into half-inch pieces. In a medium, nonreactive saucepan, bring the rhubarb, two-thirds cup water and the sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the rhubarb is tender and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

Slice the strawberries and puree them in a blender or food processor with the cooked rhubarb mixture and lemon juice until smooth.

Chill the mixture thoroughly, then freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    Wow! The story about your mom was very touching. Both of my grandmothers were diagnosed with breat cancer and so breast cancer awareness month is very important to me. On a lighter note, this pie looks absolutely delicious. I stumbled upon your blog not too long ago, and as a fellow baker I really enjoy your posts!

    Definitely a colorful pie and enough tequila in it to make sure you keep the kids away from it. Looks like a winner!
