Recipe by MarieRynr
READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
YIELD: 2 pints




  • First of all make the crumble by combining all the ingredients together in a bow and using your hands to rub the butter into the flour s that the mixture comes together to form small, pea-sized balls of dough.
  • Sprinkle this evenly into an 11 X 7 inch baking tin and set aside.
  • Cut the rhubarb into 1/2 inch lengths and place them in a large shallow baking dish along with the sugar and lemon juice.
  • Place the dish on a lower shelf in an oven, preheated to 375*F, Place the tin containing the crumble mixture on the shelf above it.
  • The crumble needs to be baked for 10 minutes, then remove it from the oven and cool.
  • The rhubarb may need a further 15 to 20 minutes cooking before it is completely tender: when it is cooked, take it outand puree it in a food processor or blender til smooth.
  • Transfer to the fridge and chill.
  • Before making the ice cream, use your hands to break up the cooled crumble and restore it to small peas sized pieces.
  • (If they are too big the pieces are too unwieldy to eat, if too small,they tend to disappear.) Next, stir the cream into the rhubatb puree, pour it into an ice-cream maker and churn until the mixture has the consistency of softly whipped cream.
  • Quickly spoon into a plastic freezer box and stir in the crumble pieces.
  • Put on the lid, and then freeze for a minimum of 2 hours, or until the ice cream is firm enough to serve.
  • To make without an ice-creammaker, freeze the mixture, without the crumble, in the box for 3 to 4 hours,then whisk and return to the freezer.
  • Refreeze for a further 2 hours, then whisk again, and stir in the crumble before the final freezing.
