I have to admit I wasn’t a huge fan of rhubarb until I moved to the UK, well actually I think I never tried it until I lived here, but now , vanilla ice cream with rhubarb , for me is the perfect comfort British pudding <3 The sweetness and creaminess of the ice cream with the tanginess of the rhubarb is just..mmmhm… yum yum
2/3 of whole fat milk
1 small double cream pot ( 284ml )
6 tablespoons golden caster sugar granulated
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
optional : vanilla pods from 1 stick.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients and stir well. Turn on the ice cream machine and pour the mix into the bowl of the ice cream maker and make according to the manufacturers instructions.Leave the ice cream in the freezer for a couple of hour before serving.
For the rhubarb sauce:
Rhubarb 400 grs
Brown Sugar, start with 1/4 of a cup and add to taste
Juice of ½ Orange
Trim and chop the rhubarb in small pieces and put them in a saucepan add the sugar and the orange juice and a spoon of water and bring to boil. Turn the heat down and cook until the rhubarb is soft but it. Taste and add sugar if you like it sweeter.
You can serve it with a few chopped nuts and biscuits for that extra crunch ! ( ginger nuts or hobnobs are my favorite for this! )
