When I was shopping at the weekend I noticed that rhubarb was now available. I love rhubarb so I decided to get some and decide what to do with it later.
My husband said rhubarb was too bitter and my son was not sure he had ever tried it before. I decided that I would make a rhubarb fool as that should be sweet enough to suit them both.
A fool is a light creamy base mixed with a sour fruit like rhubarb or gooseberries to produce a delightful dessert for a summers day. The rhubarb fool went down a treat, both my husband and son loved it and demanded more. It was really simple to make, whilst looking impressive. It would make an ideal end to a summer’s night feast.
Don’t expect it to stay around long once it is served.
