Recipe: strawberry-rhubarb sundaes

Monday, August 13, 2012

Untitled  
It takes only 10 minutes to create a colorful ice cream topping that makes the most of a well-loved just-before-summer combo: sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb. - marthastewart.com

Untitled Untitled The strawberry-rhubarb sundaes have become a summer favorite at my house! 
It’s perfect if you want to serve something homemade at a picnic or BBQ on those hot summer days without spending the entire day in the kitchen. 
It is delicious with a scoop vanilla ice cream and shortbread cookies or even on pancakes. 

Strawberry-rhubarb sundaes by Martha Stewart
1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 rhubarb stalks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
2 pints vanilla ice cream 
Shortbread Wedges or store-bought shortbread cookies, for serving (optional) 

In a large saucepan, place strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, and 1/4 cup water; bring to a simmer over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb begins to break down, 6 to 8 minutes.

Refrigerate until cool, at least 1 hour and up to 1 week.

Spoon strawberry-rhubarb sauce over scoops of ice cream; serve with shortbread, if desired.


Enjoy!

  16. karma. Bad karma, actually. I was just thinking how much I'd enjoy ice cream right now, but I don't have any, and then I found your blog. I always eat ice cream with fruit and cookies...when I remember to buy ice cram, of course.
