Rhubarb & Ginger Fool Recipe
Veg CD DP English 25 minutes
Serves 4 Cold Vegetarian Fruit Dessert Eggless England British
300g/11oz Fresh Rhubarb, cut into 12mm/½-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
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.
