rhubarb refreshment

I must admit I'm not as keen on rhubarb crumble as I should be, considering we have four very prolific plants. But all is not lost, as I've finally found a rhubarb recipe I love, Rhubarb Ice Cream:

Based on a Delia recipe, this ice cream is nothing short of amazing: the perfect balance of sweet and tart and so easy to make. And unlike most ice creams made without eggs, which set terribly hard in a home freezer, this one stays super smooth and creamy.

The ideal way to serve up a seemingly limitless supply of rhubarb, particularly on such an unseasonably hot and steamy weekend.

  1. oh yummy, I love the sound of that, which Delia book is it from? I've just planted a rhubarb crown, it will be a while before I have an excess but I can dream xxx

  5. Is this the rhubarb crumble version in her Summer Cooking book? If so, I fully agree - truly wonderful ice cream!

  14. Rhubarb makes a fantastic ice cream flavour. I don't know why it is not sold commercially.
