Strawberry rhubarb sherbet

Dad: What's that in the tub???
Me: It's strawberry & rhubarb coulis
Dad: Oh cool! But... that's a whole tub, what are you gonna do with all of that?
Me: Well, I can decorate dessert plates, pour it over ice cream & cake
Dad: Right. But... that's a whole tub...
Me: Well, I can freeze the rest into ice cubes you know!
Dad: ... (still staring at the tub)

3 days later

Me: (pulling out the tub from the fridge) Ok, fine dad! I'll make sherbet with the coulis.
Dad: What's that in the tub?

Strawberry & Rhubarb sherbet
  • 2 cups of chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups of sliced rhubarbs
  • 2/3 cup of sugar (the coulis I made only had 1/3 cup, but it'd be sour so add 1/3 or more)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp of Ice wine cider (optional)
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
Put the first four ingredients into a sauce pan over low heat. Cover and let cook for a few minutes. Turn off heat. Cool, then blend until smooth and add Ice wine. Add the cream and chill in the fridge a few hours or over night

When ready, churn mixture in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instruction, add the chopped strawberries in at the last 5 minutes of churning.

Serve with home-made waffle bowls, some chocolate-covered almonds or an Oreo cookie :) Yummy!

Hey Melinda! Ice wine, or Ice cider is an apple wine from Quebec, apparently sold in the States as Ice Apple Wine. It's made from frozen apple juice by fermentation. It's very sweet :)
