Cooking Light MAY 2008

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 2 large oranges)
  • Mint sprigs (optional)
  • Orange rind strips (optional)

Preparation

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Cool slightly. Place rhubarb mixture in a blender, and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl, and refrigerate for 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled. Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Place a freezer-safe bowl in a freezer for 10 minutes. Spoon sorbet into bowl; cover and freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Garnish with mint and rind, if desired.

Note:

You can vary this simple dessert by using fresh tangerine, red grapefruit, or blood orange juice in place of the orange juice.
