A refreshing rhubarb sorbet that keeps well in the freezer - a great way of using up rhubarb if you've grown too much!


  • 500g rhubarb
  • 225g caster sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 150ml water


  • STEP 1
    Wash, trim and cut the rhubarb into 1 inch chunks.
  • STEP 2
    Place rhubarb, sugar, lemon juice and water in a pan and gently cook until soft, around 15-20 minutes.
  • STEP 3
    Allow rhubarb to cool then blend mixture in a liquidizer until smooth.
  • STEP 4
    Freeze in an air tight container stirring every hour to prevent ice crystals forming until set, around 4-6 hours. Alternatively use an ice cream maker to churn then store in an air tight container and freeze for around 4 hours until set.
  • STEP 5
    Lovely served with baked bananas, a nutty cake (especially pistachios) or on its own!
