Rhubarb Crumble

Totally off topic, but seen as it's rhubarb season and quite a few of us are enjoying our home grown rhubarb crumble (including me today at dinner)......I just thought I'd start a little off-topic debate.

Custard, cream or ice cream??? (Or something else).

    Iam stewing my rhubarb and then eating it with ice cream or stirring it into plain yogurt. Yum image

  • A fat blob of double cream for me Orchid! Freshly whipped! Extra thick layer of crumble too, especially when it's rock hard! My favourite!

    OH would have cream and ice cream if I let him.  I like either as long as it's real dairy ice cream and I also like real vanilla custard.

    Just for a change I made rhubarb and strawberry cobbler this weekend and it's luscious.

    Not cooked? Does that not give you tummy ache??

  • That takes me back to wonderful childhood days Tray14! Best eaten whilst looking for the next stalk to pull!

    If you get all crumbled out (if that's possible) then rhubarb and ginger vodka is lovely.

    Evaporated milk for me, please . . . . on fruit crumble or fruit pie.  Mmmm luurrrvly!!

  • 4thPanda4thPanda Posts: 4,145

    Normal milk for me image If not, evap will do! 

    Never custard image 

    I do, however, like cream on my ice cream, it goes hard. Yummy image

    It does go hard Panda image Does anyone remember that stuff you could put on ice cream when you were little, it went hard and you could get different flavours - Ice Magic - cream on ice cream is like a grown up Ice Magic image

    Not had evaporated milk for years, might have to try that too. 

    I've decided I need to make another crumble and try a bit with each of the different toppings image

  • Evaporated milk - now that is a blast from the past for me. I remember my dad always opening about an inch with a tin opener and us pouring it from the tin. yum!

    Waitrose still sell Carnation Evaporated Milk. Another childhood memory, just like the raw rhubarb dipped in sugar Tray 14
