Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

One bite of this balsamic roasted strawberry and rhubarb sorbet and I think you’ll agree that your spring and summer just got a whole lot zesty and zippier. If you’ve never tried roasted strawberries I’m going to have to insist that you do (in the non pushiest way possible of course). If you have then you know how absolutely intoxicating the berries are when they’ve been hit with that low and slow heat.  I find that to be true of most things that go through the roasting process. In short, roasting rocks and you should and simply must try it.

Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet

I’m kind of obsessed with making sorbets. Clearly as we’ve shared: WATERMELON SORBET, BOOZY BLUEBERRY THYME SORBET, CANTALOUPE SORBET, GRAPE SORBET, POMEGRANATE SORBET, YELLOW WATERMELON AND LIME SORBET, and now this balsamic roasted strawberry and rhubarb number that will have your head spinning (in the best possible way). I have to admit, this one is by far my favorite to date. It’s big, bold and boisterous starting with it’s intense and intoxicating color it ‘shard to look away. Practically taunting you to taste it. Once you do, well let’s just say I’ll be making this A LOT this spring and I think you will be too.

Best part, sorbets are seriously simple to make. Roasting does involve a few additional steps but it’s completely worth it. You could even roast the night before, throw everything in the fridge to chill and then get your sorbet on in the a.m. You can be plopping your spoon in mid afternoon. Ready to make some? Of course you are.

    Have you ever made this without the ice cream machine …..i don’t have one and really Wanner to try this recipe

    • 15.1

      Hi Linda, I’ve not tried it without the ice cream maker. I have heard that you can simply transfer it to the freezer – but again I haven’t tried that method. Please let us know how it turns out if you do try it. Thanks!

    You are a culinary genius! Am also envious of your photos- how in the world do you get this not melt while you snap away?

    • 16.1

      Thanks Jessica. I usually put the jars and cookie scooper into the freezer for a few minutes prior to shooting to help keep things cold.

  17. 17

    Paula, your photos are gorgeous!!! I’d love some sorbet!

    Strawberries, rhubarb, and balsamic are made for each other. I agree that roasting the fruit brings out the best flavor.

    Hello summer! This sorbet is perfect for late night snacking.

    Just reading the title made me drool. I dunno… Perhaps it’s some Pavlovian response to words strawberry, rhubarb, balsamic, and sorbet in one title. Holy yum!

    We made this and it was fabulous. Loved the cracked pepper. Used our family’s 100 yr. old rhubarb plant transplanted from upstate NY and back to Denver, CO circa WW1!! This was special!

    I always love your creativity. The other day I was trying to think of something to do with Balsamic, other than drizzle over mozzarella and tomato! Great idea!
