  • 130g caster sugar

  • 500ml double cream

  • 1 orange zested (to taste)

  • 3 tbsp water

  • 450g rhubarb chopped

  • 500ml custard


  1. Add the rhubarb, sugar, water and the orange zest to a saucepan and gently cook over a medium to low heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once the rhubarb has broken down and started to turn into a mush, take it off the heat and leave to cool.
  3. Once cool, puree the rhubarb with a stick blender.
  4. Whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks.
  5. Fold the custard and the cream into the rhubarb puree.
  6. Pour the final mixture into glasses, chill and serve.

Handy Hint

Make sure as much liquid as possible is drained from the pureed rhubarb, otherwise the fool will be too sloppy.
