  • I went downstairs to get some more ice cube trays...

    I went downstairs to get some more ice cube trays and when I came upstairs, there was a LOT of rhubarb mix all over the floor, counter, under the jug... What a mess to clean up. I thought it was odd that the recipe indicated that one needed the simmering basket, which I have, but the basket was not mentioned in the recipe... Every other time I have used the basket, the recipe specifies to remove the measuring cup and use the basket instead. Perhaps you could modify the recipe to include this step so that someone else doesn't experience the mess I just had to deal with. I put only 250 gm. of sugar and it tastes sweet enough for me, and substituted honey for the glucose syrup when I looked online to see what else I could use. I also intend to add a tbsp. of ginger liqueur at the end of step 4 as a little alcohol prevents sorbet/ice cream from freezing rock solid. I love the orange/ginger/rhubarb flavours, thanks for posting!

  • I was intrigued by this

    I was intrigued by this recipe and so pleased I made it. The taste is complex and refreshing with lovely colour and a perfect smooth texture. I guess the fruit pulp, liquid glucose and partial invert sugar creation are all responsible for the final beautiful result. This recipe filled 3 glad ice bags which makes it very convenient to store and split the frozen mix. I bag of frozen blocks in the Thermomix for 20 secs at speed 10 did not need any help with the spatula. There is a lot of sugar in the recipe and I will try making this recipe with less next time and reduce the liquid glucose in proportion - but it might give an icier and less smooth result? Let's try it!

    I serves a scoop of this sorbet with some Thermomix dark chocolate icecream and it was a perfect marriage!

    Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

    I've made two batches of this now... a lovely delicate flavour, absolutely delicious! I've been experimenting a bit with the glucose syrup to get the perfect sorbet consistency... I think it's about right now tmrc_emoticons.)
