This dessert combines the refreshing zingy sweetness of rhubarb sorbet with a smooth, creamy, ginger-infused fromage frais. It is really quick to put together and can be made well in advance of serving.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
320g rhubarb, chopped into small bite-sized pieces
320g strawberries, hulled and quartered
80g soft brown sugar
3 tablespoons chambord
2 teaspoons ginger jam
150g fromage frais

Method

  1. Find a shallow metal freezerproof tray, about 20 x 10cm.
  2. Place the rhubarb and strawberries in a heavy-based saucepan with the sugar and the liqueur. Heat over a medium-high heat for five minutes, then lower the heat and cook for a further 10 minutes to reduce the fruit mix.
  3. Scoop it all into the shallow tray, leave to cool for 10 minutes, then place in the freezer for one or two hours. Scoop the frozen mixture into a bowl and beat it for two minutes to break the ice crystals and aerate the mixture.
  4. At the same time, clean the metal tray and line it with cling film so that it overhangs by 3–5cm. Return the sorbet to the lined tray and re-freeze for one to two hours, or overnight.
  5. Take the sorbet out of the freezer 20 minutes before serving. Now make the ginger cream by adding the ginger jam to the fromage frais and stirring thoroughly.
  6. To serve, gently ease the sorbet out of the tin, place upside down on a clean chopping board and cut the sorbet into about 20 5 x 2cm strips, to mimic rhubarb sticks. Arrange the sorbet strips on a plate, add a dollop of ginger cream and serve immediately.
