Louise Bannon’s Buttermilk Sorbet with Rhubarb Juice
This is a very light, refreshing summer dessert.
For the sorbet
75g lemon juice
1 lemon zest
2 leaves gelatine
For the rhubarb juice
400g forced rhubarb
a handful of strawberries
fresh herbs like Spanish chervil and wood sorrel
Dissolve the sugar in a little buttermilk and add the soaked gelatine. Stir until dissolved. Add the rest of the buttermilk and lemon juice and zest. Churn in an ice-cream machine.
Cut the rhubarb into 1cm pieces. Boil the sugar and water and add the rhubarb. Simmer for 5 minutes until rhubarb is just cooked. Allow to cool down fully in the fridge.
Place a scoop of buttermilk sorbet in a bowl, add some strawberries, rhubarb and the rhubarb juice. In the summer, I like to pick some herbs where they can be found growing in the wild. I go to Djouce Woods in Co Wicklow. I love some Spanish chervil, which has a liquorice flavour, and wood sorrel that has a citrus flavour.
