Delia's rhubarb crumble ice-cream

First we had rhubarb crumble, then it was rhubarb crumble cake and finally we have rhubarb crumble ice cream.

You get the picture.
 We have lots of rhubarb!

If you have read my previous post, you will know that in common with lots of people this year , our rhubarb plant has gone mad.

This recipe from Delia's Summer collection is easy and delicious.

Even without an ice cream maker, it is straightforward to make and produces delicious, soft textured ice cream ( if you remember to transfer it from freezer to fridge about 40 minutes before it is needed) with lovely crunchy crumble bits.
I reserved some of the crumble to sprinkle on top of the ice cream for added crunchiness.

And there is still some rhubarb left.
So what to do?
Rhubarb has featured on a lot of my favourite blogs at the moment.
Which shall I try? -
 Streetcomber's delicious sounding homemade rhubarb vodka
or this luscious rhubarb and fig jam from Colleen at Rus in urbis or maybe these rhubarb muffins from Debs dust bunny.
Lots of lovely inspiration;lots of lovely recipes!



  1. I just HAVE to get me some rhubarb!

  2. That does look very very good!

    We only picked 2 sticks from our rhubarb, and this has been the best year! Our silty river valley soil isn't liked by rhubarb, I've been digging out some of the grey clay subsoil to put around the rhubarb and it seems to be perking up... well, it hasn't died like its predecessors.

    1. Thank you. It was very straightforward to make.

      Our rhubarb might be growing madly, but not so the gooseberry bush! It is in its third year and has only produced a handful of mouldy berries each time.

  3. That looks phenomenal! I am going to look out my Delia Summer Collection right now.
    Thank you!
