Rhubarb & Ginger Fool Recipe   

Veg  CD  DP  English  25 minutes plus cooling


Serves 4       Cold  Vegetarian  Fruit   Dessert   Eggless   England  British  Europe

300g/11oz Fresh Rhubarb, cut into 12mm/-inch pieces
3 tbsp Sugar
3 tbsp Honey
The juice & finely grated zest of 1 Large Orange
1-2 tbsp finely chopped Stem Ginger
240ml/8fl.oz. whipping cream


1. Place all the ingredients apart from the cream in a medium saucepan, bring to simmering point, mix well then simmer gently for 10-15 minutes, stirring from time to time until the rhubarb is very soft. Do not add any extra water or other liquid.

2. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.

3. Once the rhubarb is completely cold, whip the cream in a large mixing bowl until it forms soft peaks.

4. Using a slotted spoon, add the rhubarb mixture to the cream - don't add too much of the juices otherwise the fool will be too runny. Gently fold the rhubarb into the cream using a spatula or metal spoon just for a few seconds. The finished dessert should have streaks of fruit still showing.

Chill until ready to serve.
