|Cup of tea ? No cup of rhubarb sorbet
I have keeping this specific recipe as a clipping for some years or more without getting around to make, so I grab this opportunity to make it for this blogging event. I have no clue, where I originally have found this recipe, but it is coming from a Danish magazine of some kind.
|Rhubarb harvest from the garden in Horsens
At the same time it was something of challenge to make this rhubarb sorbet, as the rhubarbs after a long and very sunny July here in Denmark withour any rain for the majoirty of one month have given up in most gardens. The rhubarbs in my own garden are done for this year, and most of my work colleagues were in the same situation. However, a short sms to my very good friends in Horsens turned out very positive, as they were able to support me and thereby the virtual tea table with plenty of rhubarb stems, which I could come and pick on my way home from work :-)
The rhubarb sorbet has a refreshing and rich wonderful taste of rhubarb.
