Classic Rhubarb Fool with Farm-Fresh Cream
This delicious rhubarb fool recipe from the April 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Living is a traditional English dessert.
Martha Stewart Living, April 2006
- 1 pound red rhubarb (about 9 stalks), leaves discarded, stalks cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups heavy cream
- Put rhubarb, sugar, and 2 tablespoons water into a medium saucepan. Cover, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir once, and cook, uncovered, until rhubarb has completely softened, about 8 minutes. Let cool slightly.
- Transfer rhubarb mixture to a food processor, and puree until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl. Refrigerate rhubarb puree until cool, about 30 minutes.
- Beat cream with an electric mixer or by hand until soft peaks form. Gently fold rhubarb puree into the whipped cream in 2 batches, leaving some streaks remaining. Spoon into glasses.
