Oh, man, I really hit the nail on the head with this one.
The rhubarb is producing beautifully, and I’ve been trying to decide on some new ways to use it. Maybe because I was in the mood for ice cream, the idea just popped into my head. I mean, I had never heard of rhubarb ice cream, and then there I was attempting to make it.

The ingredients couldn’t be simpler – rhubarb, organic sugar, raw cream. And just a dash of sea salt.
There was a hint of tart, just the right amount of sweet, and all that glorious creaminess. I’m all about the creaminess, guys.
Rhubarb Ice Cream Begins in the Garden
We have just one clump of rhubarb, and it has flourished in our lasagna garden, providing a great spring crop for lots of tasty treats. Rhubarb is a perennial and just keeps coming back year after year with little work on our part. We renew our gardens each fall with layers of manure or compost, and then mulch with leaves, hay, or wood chips. And that’s about it.
The rhubarb flower is really interesting, but we cut them off as soon as they show up, assuring that the plant’s energy is going into stalk production, rather than flower production.
