Make Strawberry Rhubarb Ice with Grand Marnier for something different - here is how to make this recipe with or without an Ice Cream Maker Machine.
2 cups chopped rhubarb (about 1/2" - 1" size pieces)
1 pint (about 1 pound) hulled, sliced strawberries
1/3 cup Grand Marnier
1/2 cup granulated sugar, or to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a 3-quart pan.
Heat the mixture on medium-high until it reaches a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low (ensure a simmering temperature is maintained), and continue to cook the rhubarb mixture until it thickens, about 10 minutes. Be sure to stir often to avoid sticking and burning.
Remove the mixture from the heat and cool to room temperature.
Using a blender or a food processor with a chopping blade, puree the mixture.
If using an ice cream maker, pour the processed mixture into the container of the ice-cream maker and process into ice following the manufacturer's directions.
Transfer to freezer container and store in freezer.
If not using an ice cream maker, pour the processed mixture into an 8" square metal pan.
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until the mixture is firm.
Break the mixture into about 1" size chunks and process the frozen chunks in a food processor or a blender using the chopping blade, until smooth and fluffy.
Return to freezer until ready to serve.
Allow the ice to stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes prior to serving to allow the ice to soften slightly.

I never knew making Ice Cream was SO easy with an Ice Cream Maker!
