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).

    ...half fat Creme Fraiche... don't grow rhubarb but I quite like Asda's crumble at £1.50 - frozen... enough for 4....well 3...

    ...glad you enjoyed your home grown...

    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.
