  • 2 cups fresh rhubarb sliced into one inch pieces
  • 1 cup sugar divided
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 egg yolks


  • Before starting the ice cream, combine rhubarb and sugar in a small saucepan with water and heat over medium-high heat. The sugar will dissolve into the water and the whole mixture will come to a boil. When the rhubarb gets soft and easily falls apart when you press it with a spoon, you’ll know it is ready to go. Transfer the contents of the pot to a blender and start on the ice cream base.
  • Temper heated heavy cream and milk into a mixture of egg yolks and sugar. Return to the saucepan and heat on low until the temperature of the custard reached 160 degrees.
  • Pour the custard into the blender with the rhubarb and pulse to combine. You can’t churn the ice cream until it is cool so you’ll need to refrigerate it in a covered container for about 8 hours, or until it is completely cool.
  • Once it is cool, churn according to your ice cream machine instructions. Transfer the churned ice cream to a container and freeze until ready to eat.



RECIPE TIP: Mix in rhubarb sauce when transferring the ice cream to its container for an added punch of rhubarb flavor in each bite!
